lovely-and again the Brits (never trust companies starting with a G !)
Let's hope that legal action by the other party will have some success because the merely letter writing by Mozilla will likely not. Waiting to hear more on that. thx !

Although I wish them well I will not use Firefox. I had a very bad experience with it as did a few other people I know. I went back to Google Chrome and everything is fine now.

You cannot currently send a star to Theodore because you have done so within the last day.

I use Internet Explorer (has issues with your keyboard's "direction arrows" if you're trying to edit text in HTML code), Firefox (takes up more CPU which you can see in Task Manager under Processes), and Google Chrome (has a very useful Translation Device which is good if you're ordering from overseas sites...), and they all have their delights and drawbacks.

But I don't like the way these software browers exploit the data they have access to and then can sell on to data warehouses... a big evil in the modern day world of the world wide web.
