I thought that that was the American Red Indian way of doing business.....

The Africans just simply chop off your arm or leg or head with a
machete..... :-) .

But either method is a lot better than what the Mongols did: either the
Iron Horse treatment or the Bamboo Treatment.

Ah, now that one I have heard off. A rather common idea

some time.... :-) .

Also I have sometime difficulties with a relatively slow performance
of Firefox - 3.6 and other recent versions.

Yes, I've found it slow, but I've always thought that this might be due to
having a lot of add-ons. In comparing Chrome and Firefox are we comparing
like with like (taking all the functionalities into account)? I've never
actually tried disabling or uninstalling the addons to make a test. Chrome
certainly loads faster.

My experience for what it's worth: From time to time I download music
from nugs.net. This is controlled by a java program which is downloaded
if it can find the jvm on my computer. This usually works splendidly
with Chromium but stalls on Firefox be cause the jvm cannot be found.
It seems therefore that java ought to work with Google Chrome.

Just my 2p's worth.
