I'm not surprised by this at all. I think a very common mode of usage
is people who have TB on their computer but don't use it regularly. (I
have several friends like this.) Only when they want to search for
something 'embarrassing' (medical conditions, etc) will they use it.
With an update cycle of one-two months between releases, it's likely
these people are actually _never_ up to date (unless they choose to
restart TB during their browsing session.)
