Finally we have decided to phase out the support for IE 6 (Internet Explorer Version 6). There were a lot of talks lately in the media regarding the vulnerability issues this old timer has caused even to Google Gmail application.

So with such a big support in the fight for standards complaint web we think it's time to stop wasting time fixing bugs and all sort of peculiarities IE6 brings to life.

This is a temporary solution to help the users to print the coming weekly/daily auctions easily. In the coming updates we'll integrate it with the main search area. For video tutorial refer to

The advanced search gives opportunity to search by property types and property description. We used the descriptions to classify the different types and limit the variations. For example even though a property is classified as 1-4 Family its type will be Multi Family. The user can select which columns to display by checking the appropriate fields.

We are in a process of upgrading the current download feature on ILFLS. Changes will include a clear separation in First and Last Name of the Current Owners plus adding more columns with data from ILFLS details page.

All new columns will be added at the end of the existing ones so if you use Mail Merge Application it won't cause trouble. But you may need to change the matching fields for the First/Last Name of the 1st or 2nd owner.
