NW: well said; I am in a similar position to you and agree absolutely with your comments. The browser issue, given the will, could actually be solved relatively quickly I suspect but it requires either time (Firefox) or money (O3), and most of all, someone to take responsibility.. As to time, the kind of boring development seems no longer interesting to the programmers who are still active on the platform, and as to money, that remains in very short supply. As to responsibility, it completely escapes me how the highly intelligent and dedicated individuals working for Castle, ROOL, ROL and the various developers continue to overlook this absolutely crucial area for desktop users. If Iyonix Ltd and Ad6 did not sell desktop machines I could understand this, but they do. Yet a desktop machine with the quality of current browsers is getting seriously difficult for a home user to justify purchasing.
