    firefox plugins isn't that kinda cheating and as for server side decode, it doesn't have access to ss, must be some sort of best guess system, but really how accurate could that be?

    And it isn't, April Fools.
    actually, it is April 1st in Kiribati already (see Link [is.gd]) and since we have readers all across the globe, it sounds quite OK for us to publish the post now. We don’t have that many readers from Kiribati, but it would be unfair to publish it when it’s April 2nd there

    shouldn't have said april fools... woulda been funnier to let it go.

    i mean, an article talking about the ie team effectively fixing every problem they've ever had with the next release is funny enough..... but....

    I liked the server code they found at the mixx... (anything matching "cats" was promoted)

    Haha,

    I definitely believed it until it got to the sever side reader part... you could find out people's database passwords and more if that was possible.

    Nice one though!

    You'd be surprised how many forums I went to where people thought the article was serious.
