    I wouldn't call it quickly, they received the technical details on Wednesday evening.
    If anything this news article is days old.

    Days? The competition started on Wednesday night (GMT) and won't end until tonight. The only reason I'm publishing now is because I don't post on Saturdays, and Monday is too far away for it to be relevant.

    (However, I did spot that the article had an early draft of the final sentence in place, which didn't include the results for Flash and Adobe Reader - I've now corrected that.)

    The contest only puts up prize money for major browsers, and unfortunately Opera doesn't count: it has under 4 per cent of the market and dropping.

    This, except a component keeps crashing in it, and I've not worked it out.
