NOTE TO ALL iWindsurf USers!!! -- Internet Explorer 4.x+ works much better than Netscape.

*** Dont mistake this comment as a plug for Microsoft ***

We currently use Microsoft Internet Information Servers and SQL Server database to deliver the site. All pages are dynamically generated using Cold Fusion. (For all you open source guys, we tried using Linux but after much debate it became clear that IIS and SQL server were better for our small development team and short time frame.) The site is optimized for IE 4.x+. For reasons not totally known to us, Netscape is incredibly slow in comparison. Further, Netscape 4.7 has a known bug that makes it difficult to view secure (SSL) pages. I assure you that we are doing everything possible to create a solution to this slowness. We are also working on a lite graphics version for those still having speed problems. If there are any technically savvy folks out there that can offer answers to our Netscape woes, please talk to us! In the mean time, we strongly suggest using Internet Explorer, its much faster in comparison.

Thanks.
