What the devil?

I know at one time "best" brought up the IE homepage in Google, but how could "1" bring up Hypotheses, anyone? I can't think of an intuitive reason for this.

Indeed. Mozilla is at version 1.x, so it's top for "1". Top result for "4" is (Netscape 4.x). Top results for "5" and "6" are Quicktime and Internet Explorer. "7" is back with Netscape and Opera is second. 8 doesn't bring up any particular software, but "9" is Windows Media Player (9).

It's more the links than the content - taking out the punctuation, there are many links on the web to "Mozilla 1 x", "Netscape 4 x", "Quicktime 6 x", "Windows Media Player 9" etc. So, I think we can conclude that Mozilla is the most popular 1.x software currently available :)

The importance of moving on to FireBird cannot be over-stated. Godspeed!

actually, it _can_ be over-stated. And you've succeeded in doing just that, in your various posts.
