One hurdle left to switch

Phew!  I just completed my US Federal return with H&R Block's online
"Tax Cut" using FreeBSD 6.2 and Firefox and it worked reasonably well.
They are not 100% standards compliant but close enough.  This is the 3rd
consecutive year I've used them.  No flash required.

H&R Block uses strictly Javascript (not sure if it's really AJAX
quality, but it might be), so if you have a recent mozilla based browser
stuff should work out of the box.

Don't try to load the page with lynx or links though :D.
