    you can't fling the cow !!! :D :D

    Seriously though , I have I/E6..Opera 6 ... Mozilla5.0 rev1.2.1 ... Netscape 6...and the Off By One browser . All just to tinker with, I have found I/E works better with more pages than all the rest. As far as speed goes, Opera and I/E are about the same and Netscape and Mozilla are slower with my dial-up. There really is no reason to stick with one.

    I use opera and I/E at the same time often...just my 2 cents :)...Rhett

    Hello,

    For your information, I can now fling the cow. Are you gloating because I couldn't?

    I use Mozilla because it's not Microsoft and is not targetted by virii, etc. so much as I.E.; and Eudora, for the same reason, instead of Outlook Express. I find very little difference in page loading speeds.

    :)

    I had Mozilla on my Linix, and since Peny started this thread I decided to try it on Win98.

    I like the way it operates but am I the only one that notices that it does not render fonts very well?

    I have a smiley mousetrail on my site. It runs on a small java script. Mozilla doe not let that run.

    Hello Jim,

    Your smiley mouse tail sounds nice:cool:

    Fonts seem to be OK with Win2K. May be a little less crisp. I wanted to use a browser that was more secure than IE, and less open to attack. I have been very happy with it since loading it.

    :)

    I have the lean version of Netscape 7.1 which I downloaded from www.sillydog.com.
    with its multiple tabs it isperfect for fighting with Mr. M, as I type on one tab and search on others.
    Cons: No spellcheck
    In IE I like the way I can get a second copy of an entire thread, so I can surf from the middle of a thread and then go back to my place.

    Hello there,

    I find the "tabbed" browsing really good, too.

    I agree with Pyrite, the rendering of the fonts is not very good at all. Every site looks completely different from the way I wrote them.
