Yes I had a lok at it and it works very well. I had no trouble setting up
128bit sessions to an apache server. Problem is that whether the author
wrote this thing outside the U.S. or not, he chose a U.S. based site? as
home for it :-) so we are back to all the shadows of ITAR.
The other problem with something like fortify is that it may provoke the U.S.
govt into revoking export of all versions of netscape etc.
Like I said, a non-U.S. origin web browser is the best solution... :-)
(Oh, and I don't see that happening anytime soon :-)
