I would like to amemd that statement by saying they work perfectly for me
except for an occasional temporary browser freeze.  This occur when entering
or leaving a page at which point the entire browser will hang for maybe 30
seconds then recover and perform as usual.  This a random event, but
probably occurs at least daily.
