Techie corner

Paypal are planning to block users from accessing their service as part of an effort to reduce "phishing" attacks. Very reasonable, the killer line is that Paypal state that it is "an alarming fact that there is a significant set of users who use very old and vulnerable browsers such as Internet Explorer 4". Indeed some are apparently still using IE 3, now that is old - although I do remember when IE3 was "state of the art".

I have just looked at my visitor's browser breakdown and you seem fairly up to date:

IE7 - 46%
IE6 - 26%
Firefox 1.x - 19%
Safari 1.x - 5%
Opera 9.x - 2%
Firefox 2.x - 1%
IE5 - 1%

It's a sensible move from PayPal, as people really need to sort out their browers if they are still using IE3!
