    via paypal and this is his reply:
    Hi Mate

    At Current I Don't Have Any Form Of Donations Feature Or Functions Setup, Plus I Would Feel Too Uncomfortable Accepting Donations As Its A Free Project.

    All I Can Do Is Say Thank You For The Offer. Very Much Appreciated.

    Very cool on his part!

    Now that is a true business model which all software developers should take up.
    He sounds a true gentleman and a credit to all developers of free software.
    Ive used cyberfox myself and its a great browser with no preposterous nags etc.
    When free software starts creating nags then its gone and stays gone no ifs or buts or hows your fathers.!

    It annoys me terribly when companies advertise something as free and then try to suffocate you with nags and ads to upgrade,i like free to be TOTALLY free and not bundled with any crap of any form or deceitful tricks to extort money from faithful users and i can commend the cyberfox developer for not resorting to these methods like sadly some other FREE software companies resort to.

    Business model? Where? This seems like pure charity.

    May i ask what is so terribly wrong with charity?
    2 types of businessmen in the world.
    1.those that genuinely try to benefit mankind irrespective of monetary gain.
    2.those that are trying to benefit themselves with total disregard to the wishes of the buying public.

    I sincerely believe that this chap fits into number 1 just nicely and we commend him admirably for his endeavour to bring to the masses a product which will truly benefit all with no monetary gain wanted or expected.

    There is a world of types between those 2 supposed "types".

    What I mean is that your "classification" is extremely simplistic (like "good vs evil"). Real world is infinitely more complex.

    Well hunter,
    It seems you have been sucked in hook,line and sinker with all the jargon.
    Im guessing you would like to fit into category 2 and that of course is your perogative but it certainly will not win any brownie points with me and i find it extremely disappointing that a large majority of so-called "businessmen" have lost their original focus and followed the devious road of monetary gain and self worship which of course leads to false feelings of self importance and worth.
