    Very good, Najaboy...but through the 'wonders' of ActiveX, even with a perfect firewall set up IE will invite some nasties in to stay. It will even hold the door open for their friends.

    Drive-by downloads and malicious scripts would still plague you if you were running IE.

    And Python: good catch; been quite awhile since I used it. Thanks!
