Patent No. 7478142, a technique for packaging applications that are delivered over a network and run inside a Web browser.

Patent No 5774670, which governs how Web servers and browsers can cooperate to preserve "state" information.

Closely related is the broader Patent No. 5826242, which concerns the use of ability of a Web browser communicate about state with a Web server using HTTP, the Hypertext Transfer Protocol on which the Web is built.

Worst 2 parts: 1.- This cards (HD3xxx and HD4xxx) are still selling to this day and 2.- This move will only affect Linux Users(I'm one of them and this is an offense)"
