    The same in Firefox 3.6.13. Some images are missing. And the fonts change when you dig deeper in the database, but I assume that's because it's beta. :)

    Otherwise it looks pretty good. Instant search too, fancy. :)

    EDIT: BTW, how is this made? Some things are misspelled, like Artic Cooling Freezer Xtreme. But the site it links to have the name right.

    Funny, i also search for Arctic...

    BTW, W1z, no search by publisher? Would love to search TPU reviews only...

    Works fine in FF 4.00 latest beta ( can't remember what it is)

    Was going to say what's the point of this then realised it shows reviews by other sites also.

    Neat.

    Quick look in Opera 11.01 ... no bugs so far.

    And I must say it is a great tool.

    Keep up the good work!

    when you get a search down to say Noctua under air cooling. When you click into the list of reviews, what does the green bar on the far right represent?

    IE8: Works and looks great! Search function is near perfect. Keep up the good work, W1zz.

    Chrome Build 9.0.597.98: No hiccups and is fast.
