Seems to work in IE, but if it doesn’t work in Firefox, it probably doesn’t work in Safari either.

Works fine for me using FF, you have to type the URL first which is not intuitive.

Comment by Sam Hennessy — December 14, 2006

It works also fine for me using FF 1.5.0.8 and IE 7. But it’s really not intuitive and unfortunately you just can’t use it while a process is being executed. furthermore: just another project that is tagged “beta” ;)

BTW: I like the simple way you try to avoid spam, Mr. Ajaxian :> I can’t stand the Random-Letter-Captcha-Code-Thing anymore.

Sorry, I just don’t get the point to this tool other than showing of some k3wl – and not particularly complex – Ajax. You can’t bookmark results, or email a link to someone else. You can’t create a keyword search in firefox allowing you to, for instance, enter “whois ajaxian.com” in the address bar like I do with DNSStuff. There’s no progress indicator or obvious way of telling if changes have been made to the page. Seems to be a case of trying to use Ajax to replace perfectly good techniques, just for the sake of it.

It does work in FF. You just have to type in the IP in the box THEN click the buttons.

http://www.ipgp.net is a better tool to show information about IP addresses, it is not ajav based, but it gives specific information.
