    I've been using this browser for the last few weeks...its called E2.Its IE based...has all of the good of IE without the bad...it blocks popup ads,has tabbed browsing,script error suppression,and many other features.I think its worth checking out.I found it better than Crazy Browser,MyIE2,Avant and Slim Browser.And there is no spyware or adware.

    It doesn't beat SlimBrowser in my opin..

    No skins included, no mouse gestures, no expanding favorites (instead it scrolls, PITA with a autohiding toolbar), no way to move the tabs from the top to the bottom and vice versa.

    I could forgive everything, but it doesn't support hot-keys or mouse guestures which is unforgivable. To each his/her own, but I can't reccomend this over SlimBrowser.

    I'm assuming it's been a while since you looked at it?

    OOPS! I misread the first post and thought you were talking about MyIE2.

    I have been using Crazy Browser for well over a year now, and never had any problems with it.

    Try opera, you get a banner (unless you pay or 'find' a serial#) but the browser is fantastic. Fast, email client and downloader built in, tabbed windows (if you want), secure (apparently) and skinnable.

    I don't work for them, by the way.

    I'd really reccomedn Mozilla firebird. It beats out opera on almost all accounts, is extendable, and has every feature of opera and more.

    Firebird seems to be less forgiving of the inadequacies of older machines, which strikes me as strange when it's touted as a leaner, meaner browser.
