    If you are tired of downloading patches for I.E. and you want something better you can download 2 different free browsers that sre superior to I.E. (95% of all users use I.E. so microsoft does not have motivation to improve it)
    Opera 7.1 http://www.opera.com/
    Is the superior browser between it and Mozilla
    Mozilla is a open source of netscape(microsofts major rival)
    which is a good program and a heck of alot better than I.E.!
    But Opera 7.1 has more features: you can also save groups of pages in browsing sessions-very handy in research
    and if you prefer using keyboard shortcuts instead of mousing. Opera provides a keyboard command for every conceivable function. Opera supports mouse gestures for frequently used browser functions. With gestures enabled, you can hold the right button and move the mouse slightly to the left to return to the previous page.
    Opera has very good over all statistics and reliablity and both Mozilla and Opera are a breath of fresh air of I.E. and it's unstoppable security updates ect.

    Just a thought!

    These types of post really should go in reviews, you are not asking or providing an answer to a tech question.

    Just so you know...Rhett

    Kind of partial to Opera, put IE in the closet, and as far as the add banner goes, doesn`t bother me at all.

    I would have to agree with you
    I could really care less about a banner and the extra stuff makes it worth the while!
    It is a great browser!

    HI, Have used it for years and the banners never were intrusive to me either. I just wanted people to realize that it was not really free. Peace Mal

    One thing for sure mal1930, I wish I had known how good it was a couple of years ago myself, It will make you throw IE in the trash. I know some people will disagree, and I think a lot of it has to do with the type comp, and OS used, but in my case I liked Opera even better than Mozilla, and that was tried on both of my machines, and Opera was the one I chose to use. Thanks for the chat.

    I totally agree with you!
    And it seems to be superior to netscape's Mozilla

    Yep, I agree, I tried Mozilla, and Mozilla firebird first, and for my machine, Opera is the best(know it probably differs from machine to machine, and no offense to the Mozilla users, just my comp likes Opera best

    I'll weigh in with my quarters worth.
    I've been giving Opera a test run lately and I like it. I'm even considering registering it, if I run into one of those discount periods, $39 US is kind of steep for me right now.
    I'll keep IE as the default for the family though. I really don't get Operas mail set-up, kind of confusing, but that is for another forum.

    I have been using Opera for a couple of days now. I am still adapting to it, and figuring everything out, but I think that I am going to like it.

    HI, They do have forums at their site if you need advice. It is also highly customable but I don't have the energy. LOL.

    The mail client is new in this version and has a learning curve. I am still learning.lol

    I find prices in US dollars pretty sleep because I have to nearly double them in our money. Peace Mal
