    Great Blog! You brought up some interesting aspects that I had never thought about before. I’m going to add your RSS feed to my new browser I just downloaded. I’ve been a long time user of IE, but finally got tired of their security flaws and lack of upgrades. The new browser I got is called Ideal Broswer and you can check it out here http://www.Idealbrowser.com. You can download it and become one of their beta testers as well.–>
