    does anyone bother with these programs. im curious to hear what you guys think. even better... has anyone made any money using them? the only reason i ask is because i saw a blog posting earlier today about how to keep one of these services running in the background while you're browsing without being bothered by it.

    heres the program I am talking about:
    www.surfjunky.com

    here's the post:

    I just signed up under a friend and if you have firefox, this thing is great, Im just letting it run in the background until I get my first paycheck, hey, its extra money, and enough to support my web server.

    Looks like Fx users are screwed then. I wouldn't bother with changing the user-string to be honest, does nothing but **** up things like stats etc and gives dishonest information to web-masters. Very annoying.

    No one seems to answer the question though: has anyone actually ever received a check for this kind of stuff?

    I used to do it with AllAdvantage and some other one... back in the dayz when we only had 33.6k and 56k internet... lol :p

    I probably accumulated up to around £20 (maybe slightly more), but had probably spent 300hrs online to get that... you have to be actively surfing the net, not just leave it online because the program detects cursor movements, page clicks and web addresses. Many people got caught using bots to automate clicks - they were only able to randomly switch over between 5 websites. lol

    I've got 25 cents so far...

    It's working fine with FF. Provided you use the instructions provided in that link. I hope it pays out. ;)
