Summary: Great product, and if anyone has a huge problem with no firefox support u can always try and find another, but im sure it wont last/work as this will.
Pros: Great tool!!!! My family is big in computers, Looking up weather, news , ect. But their not great at remembering passwords, i got each and everyone of them one of them, all but 5 people use IE. no problems with it, coming up on one year!!!! still works as good as the day i got um.
Cons: True no firefox support or any other browser for that mater, but come on! it says microsoft right on it, has microsoft ever been that great at sharing??? besides firefox 1.5 is great at keeping passwords.
Summary: Even though it doesn't have FF support, when you're not at a login prompt and you press your finger on the pad, it brings up a little menu. You can then scroll to the "Quick Links" where it has the websites you created a fingerprint password for in IE. It then it opens them up in IE.
Pros: It's a fun little gimmick. Looks neat. You can have it remember all ten of your fingers. I just had it remember my index fingers, then for the middle fingers I had my wife scan her index finger... now each of us can log in.
Cons: As everyone else says, no FF support... Also, if you switch from using the "Welcome Screen" for your log on, you have to reinstall the program to get the welcome screen back. Not a problem if you just plan on using your fingerprint. Four eggs for non microsoft support...
Summary: I've noticed alot of people complain about the incapatiblity with FireFox. Think about it, Microsoft made IE, not FireFox. They made the fingerprint reader, so why would they make it work with someone elses program?
Pros: This thing is awsome! You can login to any website and even Instant Messaging programs (like Xfire) in a matter of a few split seconds! You don't even have to type in the website's address if you already have it setup to log you in because their are qiucklinks that take you their right away.
Summary: I had been wanting to check one of these out for quite some time. A friends dad had one on his government laptop years ago and ever since I have wanted one. I love you Microsoft!
Pros: I got this for basic basic security and it turns out that not only does it do that with its eyes closed but this little piece of equiptment saves me like 20 minutes a day of typing. Instant access to any of your websites applications. No more remember this password (or even username) for me! You ...
Cons: This would have done what i wanted if it remembered my windows logon and a few websites that were capible of this product. Come to find out it is Totally customizable! NOOOOO CONS!!!!!!!!! Best product of the year (next to those sick 6000+ lazor microsoft mice)
Pros: This product will allow you to login to WinXP easily. It also allows you to login to passworded websites if you prefer to manually enter it rather than having your passoword store it in a cookie.
Cons: Does not work with Firefox (v1.5)but you can use the IE View extension so that it will open those pages in IE instead. Not recommended as a security tool but an easy accessibility tool. Don't use to store password s for bank and finance sites.
Summary: I was worried when I ordered this that it might be confusing to set up, or it might not work in all websites, but it is really simple. I installed the software, plugged it in, restarted, and touched it... It basically did the rest.
