Yep. You're better off downloading and using a whole different browser, IMHO.

Just do Firefox, it can automatically grab all your favorites/cookies/Etc from I.E anyway if you want it to.
It's 4.2 megabytes...reltively painless

What does everyone think of mouse gestures?

I think they can be useful, but I prefer key combinations(shortcut keys).

I'm too much of a spaz for mouse gestures to be useful, but most of the Opera users I know swear by them.

I'm sort of a "two-handed" surfer... right-handed mouse clickies for stuff on the top and right... scrollbar and toolbar buttons. Left hand keyboard for everything else... Z and X for back/forward, 1 and 2 for going from pagebar tab to pagebar tab, CTRL-SHIFT for Open in Background Page, etc.

Peace & Luv, Liz

Are mouse gestures like the gestures in Black and white where you make cool patterns as shortcuts to spells? Or am i on totally the wrong track?

Hmm. I never played Black And White, but... an excerpt from the Opera help file:

Quote
Go to previous page   
Method 1: hold right button, click left button
Method 2: hold right button, move mouse left

Go to next page   
Method 1: hold left button, click right button
Method 2: hold right button, move mouse right

Go to parent directory
Hold right button, move up then left

Go to home page
Double-click in empty page   
Reload page
Hold right button, move up then down

Stop loading
Hold right button, move up

Open link in new page
Move mouse pointer to link and hold right button, move down

Open link in new background page
Move mouse pointer to link and hold right button, move down then up

Hope that gives an idea.

Peace & Luv, Liz

I usually use shortcut keys when browsing the internet :P

BTW i think Mozilla is better than Firefox because from what i read Firefox doesnt have a popup blocker :-\

Firefox has a popup blocker.

Mozilla is finished. (V 1.7)
Firefox isn't finished. (V .9.2)

Another reason that I like Firefox(and the Mozilla line).

Gnusto.
It's an extension that let's you play Z-code adventure games, in your browser.

Get it here.

I am now using my dual-boot system of 98SE and XP Pro. and they both have Firefox installed.  I will try it out for a while and see if it is better than IE.  At least FireFox is open-source and people can fix the errors quickly.  My dad is going to try FireFox also.  :>

Well FireFox crashed on me and I had to use IE to connect.  I guess this is why it is still a beta.  :>

Hee, and IE never crashes on you? You must have a magic computer. ;)

Almost every program crashes at some point, beta or not.

Firefox has no ActiveX vulnerabilities and that's what I like about it.  <eg>
