Thanks demex, just installed and I like it,it's really fast but I am not sure about the security threats. Well, I'm not too bothered as long as it doesn't break anything else.

i have got a feeling microsoft will block that plugin soon with an update, because it breaks some sites, and microsoft dont want that.

OFFTOPIC
End of the day firefox rocks!

hehe, recently i've been using ie within chrome.

chromeplus, based on latest chrome beta, comes with an 'ie tab', so you can use those rare sites that don't work natively in chrome...

Believe me I'm NOT anti technology but against the slavery a lot of youngsters have unwillingly got themselves into ("Blackberries" - emails etc etc).

If I'm off for 3 weeks I just DELETE all my emails when I get back to work -- ALL OF THEM without even reading A SINGLE ONE.
If there's anything important they will either send it again or call on the phone - They know my HATRED of "texting" so they wont bother with that method of communication.

Let US be in charge of technology -- not the other way around.

Cheers

You may miss that you got fired - LOL.

My IE8 started behaving sluggish and pages opened slowly, when I looked in Manage Add-Ons I found another Add-On "Google Update plugin" enabled. I have disabled it now and see how it goes.

You guys go realise that this does nothing unless the webpage is enabled to use the plug in?

Thanks John, now I understand why SF and VF were playing up, I should have used the Test skin as you have mentioned in earlier post.

sorry, it's a bit jumbled up because I copy/pasted it. I'm sure it gets the point across though!
