Should be "Browse the newest Fourms" typo fixed

I've seen this typo on http://dcplusplus.sourceforge.net/index ... ge=support million times and I wonder why it is still there.

On the other side I feel nostalgy, because it is there for ages and I became used to it. It is inherent to DC++ just as "Connection timed out" :)

Should it be fixed?
