Mozilla is the way to go... i personally like Firefox but some like Opera as well


Pros - Free, same look as IE, easier to use (more intuitive), automatically imports your IE favourites for u!

Cons - is not compatable with certain sites, the only one i've really seen it not work with is windowsupdate.com

I use Netscape. It's got built in email so you can stop using Outlook Express. It has built in spam filters (pretty decent ones too), built in popup blockers, and supports tabbed browsing. It's free. It's based upon the Mozilla browser. It has Java built in.

The cons are that it's a resource hog, it's a large download, it does crash/lockup from time to time, and (like all non-IE browsers) it interprets some HTML and PHP commands differently, so sites don't always display properly or the same as they do under IE.

If you use any non-IE browser, you'll be getting away from the security vulnerabilites. I am sure they have them too, but the other browsers are such a comparatively small portion of the total that the virus writers don't bother exploiting them.

NSA,
There is really only ONE decent browser to use. It is the fastest browser on Earth, and that's a fact. It's the type of browser that you need to configure to your own taste to make it how you like it. Having said that, IE is a joke, loaded with extra junk from Microsoft. It is however, important to have IE installed as some updates actually come with IE. So, I have it installed, but never use it. Netscape used to be nice, years ago, but I don't care for it anymore. The browser that I use??????? OPERA, my friend, OPERA. It's what the people who really 'know' like to use. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

BTW, Where is Mike? And, is this true about Mike getting married???????? Let me in on this as I am curious now. I figured he was gonna get married, but how have you guys managed to keep it so quiet. Maybe the guys here on the forum would like to know about it so they can throw Mike a big celebration. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif

Firefox, real small size, real fast and all the standard functions. (if you lack one, just patch it.

its still in the pre 1.0 build and it rocks allready !!!

For email use the litle brother of firefox: Thunderbird (this is not that good (yet) but still has all the standard features!!!

Don't you either have to pay for Opera, or have an ad banner if you want the free version?
