Hi

In the "How To > Hardware Tips" (page 79) of February's PC World there was a brief description of the usefulness of the above .com website and all the info it can give you about your computer - sounded really good. If you look at their FAQ's section they only go as far as Win XP and only mention IE.

Has anyone successfully used it with Windows Vista (Home Prem SP1) and Firefox 3.x?

Alternatively, how do you directly contact somebody who wrote an article in PC World - in this case Steve Bass?

Just use the IETab addon, as it doesn't work well with FF.

It definetly works with vista

Thanks Blam - I'll give it a go when all this rain stops! Don't like having the computer and modem plugged in in these conditions cos our power can get a bit eratic
