Learning the features
Respuesta

The two buttons on the homepage of the new applet don't work for me. Do you think it's my firewall settings? I don't usually have trouble but it's all I can think of. I'd love to see the overview of the features, because so far in reading the forums and poking around the only things I've found that really affected my solving are the Lock Clues and the flexible X's and O's--both of which are very nice, but not exactly earth-shattering emoticon

Any advice?

Thanks! emoticon

It's probably your browser's setting.
