    Is the patch for Windows me? I thought i heard someone mention it was for all versions of Windows. Is this true? The site says the patch is for Windows xp.

    Yeah, can you imagine, morzilla as kind of last hope on some privacy -- if even that was holed, then better close your windows completly.
    Ever tried the custom browser which ships in the demo scripts with TDS?
    ok, it's a browser, not with all the features and comfort we're used to, but long ago when after changes at the hotmail site or maybe another IE update i could not access many sites, that custom browser enabled me to go there anyway till it was all solved again for normal browsers too.
    Just a hint. a clean standard browser, good for testing sites too i guess.

    Just downloaded and installed the new version of FireFox 0.9.2. It works like a dream, a very good one. Yeah baby, yeah! Thanks for the link Ronjor. :D

    No kidding... 0.9.2 is so fast that it makes 0.9.1 look pretty slow.

    Can't bring myself to use IE any more... Compared to Firefox, it is irritatingly slow.
