    It looks very interesting but the first thing that comes to mind is that perhaps browser maker should implement these kind of features themselves. I would like to have some feedback about these tools, I wonder if they really work or not. ;)

    I'm running both without problems. As to whether they 'really work', well, theory is all we have right now :cautious:

    Anyone?
