After much development and beta testing, this is to announce the 1.0 
releases of FxMax and IEMax -- script sets that extend the functionality 
of Firefox 3.x and Internet Explorer 7 and above.  The functionality is 
almost the same in the two web browsers.

Note that Firefox is officially abbreviated Fx (second letter is lower 
case), whereas Internet Explorer is abbreviated IE.

Recent changes:

Fixed SayLine.exe on Win64.  Added a web client utility called 0Captcha, 
which eliminates captcha barriers via solona.net. Added Control+Shift+0 as 
a command to launch this utility directly after saving an image of the 
active window to disk.

Anyone can register for a free account at solona.net (the script will 
prompt for your user name and password there).  The service solves 
captchas via a human operator, so when one is available, it is more 
reliable than an automated approach like the WebVism extension for 
Firefox.  Human operators are not always available, but such down time has 
been less and less.

Before pressing the Control+Shift+0 hotkey, I recommend turning on forms 
mode and navigating to the input box for typing the text shown in the 
captcha image.  This helps to ensure that image will be included in the 
file that the script sends to solona.net.  To maximize your privacy, it is 
best not to fill in any other fields of the web form before submitting the 
image.  You can then fill in the other fields after pasting the captcha 
solution that the script copies to the clipboard.  The script waits up to 
90 seconds for a human operator to respond, checking every 10 seconds 
whether a solution is available.
