When one tries to access the demo using Internet Explorer (Firefox) on the AWStats-website a message tells the visitors that they should use Firefox.

In the past it was possible to "continue" and then see the demo. The "continue"-link did not function today when I tried that using Internet Explorer on Vista. This happened in a meeting with representatives of a big company.

The result was that AWStats was not even looked at and other (proprietary) software will be used instead.

Let me state that this certainly also did not help to promote Firefox.

    This is a SECURITY issue.

    The JavaScipt-code of the page leads to accesses of http://getunder50.com

    That domain was used for somehow legitimate purposes in the past. But it has new owners and now is used for very SUSPICIOUS purposes.

    Should be fixed.
