    That’s a sign that you should GET AS FAR AWAY FROM THAT WEBSITE AS POSSIBLE.

    It’s a funny image, but the number was edited. If you look closely the number isn’t as sharp as the rest of the text. Still funny though. :)

    @thegeekkid – Actually the image looks a little rough due to having to take a screenshot of the original image enlarged at 175% (for a more readable/presentable size)… ^_^

    @Citrus Rain – I totally agree…imagine someone visiting that site with IE 6! BOOM ha ha! ^_^

    Looks like what happens when someone visits an illicit porn site….I’ve had to “unfreeze” more than one computer that had a “curious” user.

    Anyone visiting that site with IE6, is probably still there, and can’t get away! Ar ar!

    Reality check: Firefox can’t tell you how many pop-ups it blocked until it forces you to do the daily Firefox update, which then tells you you might have add-ins that might be incompatible with today’s version of Firefox.

    Then it wants all users to decide which of their add-ins are compatible with today’s version of Firefox.
    Let’s see, all I need is the source code for Firefox, the source code for the add-ins, test cases, and about 100 hours per add-in. Add 500 hours per add-in if it is writen in a language I am not familiar with. Then I’d be able to decide which add-ins are compatible.
