    Why so secretive instead of naming it bluntly?

    Maybe it's because it makes a little mysterious vibe around Polybios ;-)

    I miss draggable screens... and do you? I know I'm in a minority unfortunately.

    Licensing reasons. License forbids to use the name of the company or the browser to advertise own products.

    I think the author of Hollywood has cloned himself several times, which is why he can continue to be so productive with Hollywood updates and plug-ins, year, after year, after year.

    I'm very happy to continue supporting Hollywood, and feel that buying the 2 extra licenses for my Son, and Step-Son, was money well spent.

    Keep up the great work!
