    As Fx 10 is having some teething problems I have been spending more time in Chrome (& using Iron to experiment a bit more with ScriptNo). I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts about the best link-scanner for Chrome/Iron. I'm using Safelinks at the moment. I like the look of Dr Web & have been testing it on a portable. Does anyone have a preference or any experience with either of these?

    I have Dr. Web installed and it is ok. But I have it disabled on facebook as it will really slow things down there because it scans all the links on a page.

    Is that a Fawlty Towers 'Manuel' moment, ¿qué? ;)

    Luckily I saved the previous installer (SM 2.6.1) for the funky monkey, so I'm back with that now ... oh & not forgetting Chrome's (always a good back-up) reliability (I wonder why it's so popular? lol).

    There's this from MozillaZine, FWIW. There are some very helpful people on MozillaZine, unfortunately there are also some 'expletive deleted'. :) o_O

    Anyway, back OT, I have decided to give Dr Web a bit of a fling. It appears to run a bit lighter than SafeLinks Free although it launches a tad slower. Having said that, SafeLinks can be a bit buggy.

    I tend to trust Russian AV software, it is usually very good. It should be, after all the Russians create enough malware!
