  1. Not to mention that it uses JS. Wonka javascript as detection, which is considered to be a possible malicious virus by pretty much every antivirus company. And they open the window without toolbars or any browser navigation available — bad form!

  2. How novel – an open beta in 2005 that doesn’t use Ajax! Maybe they are going for a retro kind of Y2K look and feel? I had a quick look, but found it too awful to persevere. I still have no clear idea of what makes them “better” than other news monitors.

  3. Well, if you would visit the site http://motions.sytes.net or 10000 other similar sites which, automatically detect the installed plug-ins on the remote clients your anti virus would alert that the site is infected with JS/Wonka which is not definitely true!

    There is simply no other way to detect installed plug-ins on the remote clients without using JavaScript.

    I would recommend to find yourself a better anti-virus software and not such a cheep one which, could differ between those cases.
    One day, may wisdom defeat ignorance :))
