Yes, altBrowser is now revBrowser. It was sold to RunRev awhile back. I
don't remember your complimentary version, but then we did hand out a few
complimentary versions. That said, I certainly don't remember giving it to
you as an incentive to stop working on your own. That doesn't sound like
something we do. Perhaps you got it elsewhere?

This topic has been discusses ad infinitum on this list. I suggest you do
some GMANE searches and you can find out for yourself the ongoing thinking
on this subject.

If you're interested in purchasing RunRev stock, you should contact RunRev
