I use Yahoo browser, but I've heard it can mess up one's computer. Does anyone know truth to this or has experienced this?
So much the stronger proved
He with his thunder: and till then who knew
The force of those dire arms? yet not for those,
Nor what the potent victor in his rage
Can else inflict, do I repent or change

After my computer trouble awhile back Netscape didn't want to function anymore. I figured it simply needed a reinstall since my old registry keys were overwritten but that didn't help either. So now I use Firefox which, given that both are Mozilla-based, is not really that much of a change.

I use FireFox, It blocks almost all the pop-ups and makes me surf faster.

bad thing is that it sometimes screws up codes on sites.

Firefox only can't use active X for copy right reasons. Also Firefox allows them awsome plugins I don't know what I'd do without them.

Ah that's just because Internet Explorer has it's own little sets of codes that are just slightly different from Firefox, or need less care. Firefox is straight about codes, and if somethings wrong it will pick up on it

Firefox.... totally customisable for coders which means it suits me, auto ad blocker... lots of tabs so you can have as many web pages open, and yet your toolbar will not be cluttered with browser windows.
Firefox = The Shiznit.

Well, well if it isn't Asellas you still in Tasmania, if so how you finding it here?

Firefox does have a lot more options compared to good old IE, and it's free you would think the big M would of tried to blow them out of the water,

No, I'm not in Tasmania, unfortunately... here in England doing some stupid GCSE's and then A levels. But, the legend will appear :wink:
(PS: Added ya to MSN)

IE has nothing on mozilla, in fact, any literate person who can code in VB can create IE... it's so easy. You can get a pop up blocker, but can you get half of the attributes like in Firefox? Nope. Firefox is #1.

I know it's stupid! I reckon they should just give up on IE and incorperate it into Windows, or at least just add it along with IE, but will that happen? No

PS: I hardly get a chance to use MSN so don't expect anything too quickly :wink:
