Tried it out, it doesn't really do anything interesting that anyone with a little tech knowledge doesn't know to do already.

Definitely Beta.


But seriously, those Fix It people seem to be a very dynamic group and on top of things. I remember last year when they started and invited people on several forums for input. Very nice initiative which shows that not all is lost.

That may be true for us bunch of Gurus, but put yourself into the shoes of the average user.

I downloaded it and starting installing it. It had two modules - both relating to IE8. Since I don't use IE8, I aborted the installation. But I like the concept and I am willing to try it. I wonder if the modules are assigned randomly?
