Hi ! Just wondering about trying a new browser other than IE ? Any suggestions ? & why? :)

Just wondered what other's preferred?

Would all my IE details stay in tact ?

Any help is appreciated

THX !

I am a bit of a browser junkie. I use IE6 mostly, and my second most used one is Opera. I love the Stop pop-up functionality.
I also fiddle with Netscape 7 and Mozilla occassionally. They all coexist quite happily. I also have an older Netscape installed for one particular software application that uses it.
None of the others touch the IE details.

Hi Huen appreciate your input, so if I was to try Netscape you can install email details without affecting IE in anyway

So you'd choose IE6 at the moment? I tried this when it first came out didn't appear to work well with WinME !;)

Do you have the paid version of Opera ?

Netscape 7 for me. I switched over to it some 2 months back from IE6. Tabbed windows is extremely convenient. In one window, I open my Hotmail account and in the other open my Yahoo account.

Then while opening all the mails, I right click and select open in New Tab. That way all my hotmail mails are together and don't have to search in plethora of open windows. It also keeps my taskbar empty and mangeable.

I also apply that same thing while browsing TSG Forums.

Netscape 6 was a pain, but 7 is just too good. Although for e-mail nothing as of now can beat Outlook Express.

NS7 can do everything that IE6 can and can also do some things more. :D

I'm using an IE based program called "Crazybrowser", it works pretty good...I use Mozilla sometimes, but I guess I'm just not used to it.

I use the free version of Opera joe2cool, It has some ads, but not too intrusive, and they allow you to set the type of ads that interest you! Most of the other clients will ask if you want to make them the default browser/mail client. You just say no.

Hi Joe!

I have used Crazy browser also. It is actually a plug-in style browser that runs off the IE software, but is actually faster. It has popup stopper and a great tab system where you can load multiple sites and have them all at the click of the tab. I highly recommend it.

I have used IE (4, 5, 5.5 and 6), Opera, Neoplanet (5, 5.1), Mozilla (1.1, I guess) and Netscape (4.75, 4.76, 6 and 7).

But so far I have found that Netscape 7 is the best of the lot. May be if more and more people will say this, Micro$oft will feel the pinch and come up with IE 7 which may beat all!!

Lets wait for that day. :D

But till than from me, its thumbs up to Netscape 7. :p

Just one shortcoming that I must mention about Netscape 7, although its not a major one and can't actually be a shortcoming of NS7.

I use GetRight as my download manager. It is not capable of getting hold of clicks directly from this version of Netscape. So everytime there is something that I want to download through GetRight, I have to open that page through IE.

Not a major problem by any means. But since I have been blowing my trumpet too much in favour of Netscape, I wanted to mention this as well. :D
