Being a new member, I was just browsing the forums, using IE7 beta, and found that the antiphishing filter highlighted some but not all pages as a "Suspicious Website".

Should I, again, find my bank account severely depleted, I shall no longer have to accept responsibility.

Also your Browser Wars software claims IE7 to be Netscape, perhaps this subtle accusation that MSoft.  is guilty of plagiarism, has miffed them a little?

It probably says anything containing the "iframe" tag is suspicious, to be honest, or some other quirk that I've used that it doesn't like.

IE7 isn't currently supported in BrowserWars, but I can add it.  Go to and see how it is processing the string.

OK, new team now added, I think.

[edit] Try posting a counter - does it detect IE7 properly now?

IE7 is detected correctly, thank you Stephen.

Just a thought, you may like to move this thread, Persons considering joining this project, and there are a number out there looking for new projects with Find-a-Drug closing in the near future, may be a little deterred by this thread's title.

I was thinking of putting it in the Browser Wars forum anyway (but will you be able to find it here?) Annoyingly, no sooner had I done that IE7 icon when someone I know told me he was using "Opera 9 technical preview"!  Looks like I'll have to do another logo soon.

That's interesting about Find-a-Drug.  I noticed a slight increase in hits on this site recently (counter went over 1 million, and rapidly to 1.1 thereafter, though I'm not getting extra bandwidth charges so it can't be all that bad).

There is a thread on the Find-A-Drug forum entitled Other DC Projects, where you could post an introduction to this project, and maybe attract a few new recruits. 

David Baker of Rosetta@Home condescended to recruit via this means, and his pitch appears to have gone down well.
