Am I the only one irritated by the stupid exe files they direct you to instead of the complete packages when downloading? Either way, I’ll only be using this to check compatibility of web pages.

Nope, not the only one. I’m on a dial-up connection that has a 4 hourly session limit. I’ve found most of these kind of things can’t handle it when the connection is dropped during installation – very frustrating.
That’s not to say I downloaded this aol/netscape thing, though…
Me too, I have a proxy server installed at work (Microsoft ISA) which I installed myself and lots of these installers have problems working through it, it is because it is based on NT security and not all programs sent the correct authentication to it, … I know, its my own fault for trying to use non-microsoft software in a microsoft environment!
Software is fine once its installed though..bloody Microsoft.
