Thinkpad Access Connectons 4.1

Downloading Thinkpad Access Connections 4.1 right now, looking at the changelog, I see one thing in particular I really like:

- (New) Support Firefox internet browser setting in location profile

Yea! Now Firefox can be configured using Access Connections too. This is great because Access Connections is used by many business people on their Thinkpads to manage multiple connection profiles. The ability to adjust Firefox settings quickly like that, brings it that much closer to matching IE for business needs.

On a sidenote, 4.01 causes my CPU to spike every several seconds (not much, but enough to be wasteful). Hopefully 4.1 contains a fix for that issue (no mention of it in the changelog though. I was looking around for a way to report this bug, but haven’t found any place on the IBM/Lenovo website.

One thought on “Thinkpad Access Connectons 4.1

  1. Sounds like great news (esp. for those who want automatic proxy configuration across different connection profiles, say, at work plugged into the corporate LAN and at home on a wireless Internet connection.) but I’m too spooked about the stability of Access Connections to upgrade.

    I think v3.71 is the last stable version, and that’s where I’m going to stay.
