taking initiatives to grab input focus, so that disabled the function that
most programmers used to bring application windows to the front.
Once a browser is running, NoteTab attempts to use DDE to communicate with
it. When it does so, it is the browser's responsibility to come forwards.
Microsoft seems to have fixed the problem in IE5, as it comes forward when
invoked this way. However, this is not the case of Netscape, and it is up
to their programmers to fix their code.
NoteTab v4.6a available from
