At a recent Web marketing conference in the States,
there was applause from the audience when one Web
site hosting company presenter recommended the use
of "Least Tech".

That presenter also asked to see the hands of those
who cringed when they saw the words "Starting Java"
because they knew their browser was going to crash.
EVERYBODY's hand went up.

No, you haven't configured your browser wrong.
