It's not IE..
>it has no incentive to encourage anyone to use Firefox.
Yes, it does. If you can't force Chrome down their throats, let them eat Firefox instead - the point here is that Firefox ain't IE, which must not be used at all costs.
Cean up required
This might explain why I've had a rash of attempts to crack open POP mailboxes from lots of different IPS resolving back to xxxx.members.linode.com. Hope they've cleaned it all up.
Re: Meanwhile, in the antipodes...
Most probably true, I was merely paraphrasing for those in the northern hemisphere.
My point was their stats are based on server logs, and not on samples collected by websites where the webmaster has added code to feed back to StatCounter. As such it's probably quite a fair reflection of the browsers that people at least in NZ are actually using as opposed to those that they are reported to be using.
Meanwhile, in the antipodes...
Down here in Chrome infested NZ, IE is continuing to sink. TradeMe is the Kiwi equivalent of ebay and thus the stats are probably typical of the average web user.
makes for interesting reading

I did that for 15 years. Mine's a pint.
Staying signed in
There was an outbreak of this sort of nonsense with the yahoo/xtra email service down here in NZ last month.
The advice here was that it was a cookie stealing vulnerability, which affected those who had the "stay signed in" option set when they signed in to their webmail. Clear your browser cookies and don't check that option.
May I be the first to say..
...Fark that for a game of soldiers.

>you can have the man-with-breasts thing.
More likely some sort of gender-confused eunuch
...especially to someone who allegedly used GIMP to do anything useful. I'll buy that man a beer.
"Dotcom’s famously flamboyant lifestyle bespeaks considerable wealth, inasmuch as he bought a colossal mansion"
..er....no. He's renting it. He wasn't allowed to buy it because at the time he didn't have permanent residence or something and was thus a "foreign investor". Shame for the spooks who spied on him illegally that he didn't remain so. He has now, apparently, been cleared to buy the mansion, but can't because his funds are frozen.
Can't argue about the cars though.
I for one, welcome our transpacific fibre cable toting germanic overlords.
Baby you're a Firework
The unbelievable thing about this whole debacle is that nearly everyone *knew*Kim Dotcom was a resident - that's why he sponsored the 2010 New Year's Eve firework display to the tune of $500,000 NZ - a celebration of his residency being granted. A small sum of money, easily missed.
The GCSB is not permitted by law to spy on NZ passport holders or permanent residents. There's another organisation dedicated to that though, so we can all sleep uneasily. The whole commando style raid followed by this shenanigans and the way that NZ is sucking up to Hollywood/Uncle Sham makes me wanna puke. Thought I'd left that kind of shit behind in the UK.
Firefox tells me:
The page isn't redirecting properly
Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.
