Yep, it looks as good in Firefox as it looks in IE.  ;)

I guess you don't have Java on your machine? :-\

So that's what it takes?
No, no java aboard. I've installed it several times. It is big and bloated, but I don't know what it is doing.
What is it doing for you?

Non... the only java I have in my cup is Tim Horton's.

This is what I get:
Quote
This tool respects sessions, so make sure you are LOGGED OUT of your website BEFORE generating a XML SITEMAP!

Here is why: Visitors have pointed out that CMS systems such as YaBB provide a link to delete text without prompting you to confirm. The sitemap generator will follow all links that it finds, and in cases like YaBB, if it sees a 'Delete' link, it will follow it. This could result in data being deleted when logged in as a user with delete privileges. Play it safe and log out of your website before using this tool.
I'm not sure that Java is the problem, cause I definitely have it installed (it's requuired for OpenOffice and/or Gimp) but ... I'm on Linux!
That site running on ASP (or .NET or something) with some activex triggers maybe ... makes it completely useless for me (or maybe any other Linux user).
No go!

Cautionary notice regarding delete issue is put there to prevent people using wrongly designed systems to destroy their own sites. AFAIK it's standards non-compliant approach anyway to put any site content changing actions on GET requests.
As for client side ... it doesn't matter that server runs asp, .net or whatever - client side it's plain web page with Java applet.

I completely agree with you ,codetwist! That's regarding the asp part and on a purely theoretical level ... but in practice, I just tested it on another linux machine (gentoo) and it ain't working! that's why I mentioned activex.
I'm no programmer but I do know a thing or two about OSes and using a computer.
No biggie anyways, since I'm pretty sure I can go on living without it!  ;)

Hmmm ... dunno ... it looks like just Java applet??? However, it requires more access rights than I usually provide; so, it kind of doesn't 'work' on my Windows either.
