IBM has updated the IBM Broswer 1.2, also on May 17. The English and German versions of these files are now available from the "Upgrade Protection" area of the http://www.ecomstation.com site.
Paul Smedley, an OS/2 user of (great) renown in Australia, send me the following text in an email: "Just thought I'd let you know that the problems with the JITC crash persist with the Java
