    Re: Finding you IP address. This is a great feature but can be found via alternate routes. However, I am a little amazed that in my profile “string” Mozilla shows up, I can not fin Mozilla anywhere in my PC. I did try it once. Seems odd…

      There are at least a dozen ways to find your IP address – it’s not that big of deal. You can use a command prompt and type IPCONFIG /ALL for that matter and never have to go anywhere on the Web to find your IP address – but that won’t give you all the information about your browser and what may be trailing it. The purpose of our article was to provide an easy-to-access web page where you can see your IP address and at a glance see all the things that appear in your browser information.

      Mozilla is not a browser – it’s the protocol on which most all browsers are based. It goes back a long way – back to Netscape and Mosaic. Mosaic was the first true browser – a lot of Mosaic was incorporated into Netscape. Internet Explorer is based on Mozilla as is Firefox and to a lesser extent Chrome and Safari. Mozilla is a protocol and not a browser.

      Unless you’re paying your ISP for a static IP address, your IP address can change at any time. Dial-up users will have a different IP every time they dial-up; broadband users may have the same IP address for weeks or even months. WOW64 is the 32bit emulator that is built into all 64-bit Windows. It allows 64bit computers to run 32bit software. Trident 5.0 allows websites to distinguish between IE9 running in Compatability View and IE8 running in Compatibility View.
