0.96.3.6.2 Beta (Jun 30, 2003)
This program is great. MxxCon (notice Con in the name, like Con-man) and other zealot trolls from the Nazi-spyware camp of FlashFXP will come here and try to debunk this wonderful program. Resist. They have everything to lose by this excellent competition unburdened by mystery code and spyware and undocumented packets and big brother stuff. UltraFXP is wonderful! Fast install using NSIS, similar interface to FlashFXP. You know, its great that these people can take the decent ideas from FlashFXP and implement it in a non-totalitarian way. UltraFXP is worth a try!

Calls home. Possibly sends encrypted information about your computer to a third party. Crackers are puzzled by DeWeese's complication crack prevention techniques - some state that it is likely here is Trojan code in there. Encrypted packets contain data to which a packet sniffer cannot "read." DeWeese is actively paying off message boards and other forums to erase any and all content which he refers to as libel [incorrectly so, it is my contention that it is likely FlashFXP is a Trojan]. I have analyzed the sections that the cracks "patch out," and there is more code there than would be needed to lockout or blacklist pirates. This program is doing something else, something insidious, and because the author strips the binaries [removes variable names, etc], it is very hard to tell what is going on. I pray for the safe future of computing, but with spyware and Trojans in widespread epidemic, I fear the hapless computing public will only be renting time on a computer that they no longer own. Peace be with you, defend yourself, and your right to sovereignty over your own computer.

Opera, Mozilla and IE can all use a Sun JVM - it is for Windows, Linux and Solaris. The JVM has been ported to Mac OS X and other platforms. The point? A VM is a common platform for Java bytecode. The Microsoft implementation of the Java 1.1.x runtime is broken by design to be an anti-standard. So if an applet, byte code, etc, does not work in JVM (you can run applets without a browser, btw), Opera, IE+JRE_1_x.xx_xx or Mozilla, but runs in IE, it's broken. Period.
Also, the pop-ups, and other greasy stupid Java Script applications have nothing to do with Sun's JRE. Java Script is an anti-standard in and of itself, it has renditions particular to Netscape, Opera uses ECMA+ compatibility, IE has its own flavor of it, and Mozilla tries very hard to deal with them all in a consistent manner.
The level of knowledge conveyed in these threads is pathetic, as what I just said above is a barely technical discussion.
What is boils down to is that Microsoft and Sun were in a battle to manipulate a standard, Java. Microsoft "lost" control, so they made an anti-standard out of the JVM, and made up a Java of their own, .NET. You, the bleating consumer, has no idea whose methods would best be suited for created a standard, interoperable cohesive framework for deploying applications across multiple platforms. You would not know this because you use only Microsoft Windows on Intel hardware. And for some reason, mobocracy is more important than a meritocracy or what is "fair," and drones and mediocritomatons flock to Microsoft's defense in droves simple because they don’t understand computing from a development, implementation and deployment, and fiscal standpoints.
It should be noted that dogs will eat s*** [coprophagia], but they also like fillet of mignon. The important part is being able to know the difference between a fillet of mignon and a piece of s***.
