The Rixstep site is relatively free of graphics and embedded URLs. Neither cookies nor scripting are used, save possibly for the DDG search function.
You can disable these 'features' in your browser while you're here, and remove any cookie left by DDG in this site's name.
The Rixstep site is currently hosted by Pair Networks and runs on FreeBSD with Apache/2.4.39.
The original masthead is from a photograph taken on an isolated southern shore of Crete.
Every byte at the Rixstep site is hand-coded, meaning the proprietors are amongst the few who know how to write HTML anymore. Every page at the Rixstep site is consequently optimised for maximum throughput and maximum response to you.
All things being equal, this site may render better on an Apple running Safari because:
- Apple hardware is often 'top of the line' (expensive).
- Safari renders well, often far better than other browsers.
- An Apple OS is definitely not a Windows OS.
That being said, Apple can no longer be a long-term solution.
Apple management have made themselves not the friend of their users but the enemy.
You've obviously heard of us, otherwise you wouldn't be here.
We're known for telling the truth even if it's not in our interest.
We're now telling you to beware Apple's walled garden. Don't get locked in.
What you've seen so far may be only the beginning of something far far worse.
Download our Test Drive and at least check out our free Keymaster Solo.
That's the first step to regaining your freedom. See here.
