    Thanks, fellow Zster!  Downloading it even now!  Very pleased with the way ZL is going with this.

    I would say so - they've cleared up a heck of a lot of minor bugs very quickly, and the few bigger glitches I've run into have gone away too.  I'm sure there'll be a release candidate shortly.

    Has anyone had any luck getting ZAP 3.0 & IE 6 to work behind a proxy server?    When I open I.E. it spins trying to get the web page, I see traffic going in and out (through the zap taskbar icon) but it never successfully connects.   I'm using the MS proxy client on my machine, don't know if that matters.  

    I'm going to send this to ZL as well.

    I HAVE tried the lastest beta, and it seems to work well.

    What's your opinion, Checkout? Any major/minor bugs you noticed?

    Yes.  I'm seeing the same problem liquid_fish has, but that may be a faulty install by me.  I keep making the same damn stupid mistake of installing more than one item at a time - this time I loaded proxomitron as well as ZAP 3 - so I'll need to back out and start again.  As far as ZAP bugs are concerned, yes, I'm still unable to check the "remember this" box for many connection/server requests.  Other than that, it's a hell of an improvement, particularly in the interface.

    Hi,

    I stopped using ZA because it reduced my speed very much. Thought I woulf take a look at the new beta. Installed it and uninstalled it within the same 5 minutes. I did not even have time to check how it works in my hurry to get rid of it again. Never have I seen such a GUI. I could never get used to something looking like that. I sit here and look at my screen pretty many hours a day, and I don't like to look at ugly GUIs. As for the rest of the program - I honestly don't know :)

    I guess it's preference thing.  Personally, I like it.
