Same Johann. Works fine with IE9, Auto-update Chrome, and now FF4. Whilst 
basically agreeing with Greg, perhaps care is needed for a time regarding 
HTML5 WebSocket security ("What we seem to have here is an immature HTML5
feature, and an unsettled protocol specification") one hopes it's settled
speedily. Sub-six second page updates over a dialup = world social equity
in terms of any digital divide, and full and fair eCommerce participation.

Whatever, i hope you might keep going with your excellent and informative
blog Johann. It's been a while regards: http://blogs.technet.com/b/jkruse
