Re: [IP] VeriSign prepares to relaunch "Site Finder" -- calls

One other item is that some ISP's like us can't do the browser plug in option because
of the "dial-up accelerator" products already embedded to the browser , installing
paxfires technology on top of our accelerator plug in would just chew IE and its tcp stack.   

Also they state they only proxy A record lookups thus no mx lookups.  Either way, 
it seems scary to me. But I do agree this is a revenue stream that Mickeysoft
is probably making a ton off of.
