    Well, possibly... However, a) there are all too many web sites that work with IE but not with Mozilla - a function of idiot web designers doing it the MS way not the ''right' way, and b) the word on the street is that, until now, such has been IE's dominance, there's been no point in hackers targeting any other browser - but the more people that use Mozilla, the more attractive target it will become. Don't say I didn't warn you...

    If their browser is anything like their web site it'll be really really naff then eh? By far the slowest web site (by about a factor of 10) I've visited in bloody ages!!!!!

    Unless of course they have special code if viewing their web site from IE. Either way, not impressed so far!

    STOP PRESS - edit

    Hee hee. So slow in fact, clicking on a link to another page timed out on me.

    As soon as I clicked send, I just knew that would be the response I would get

    You're probably right too! I'll give it a try when I get time.

    *giggle*

    Last time somebody said they didn't see anything wrong with Internet Explorer, I got a strange look when I said with a serious face: "Internet Explorer is only used by terrorists and paedophiles".

    My sense of humour is lost on many, many people

    I sue opera, and I prefer it to any other browser
    oh, and hows everything been while I was gone? I decided to set up my own site and I have to say, Linux is so much better than windows! (except for video editing) but with the school term firmly lodged up my <insert interesting location> and the winter coming, I'm not doing much editing now, and will probably continue to do not much until spring.

    Ignoring the obvious spelling mistake comment....

    Yeah, I've used opera too, and that's good. Face it, anything but IE is an improvement.

    As for Linux, I installed it (SUSE) on my PC at work. Fiddled around with it a bit. Wasn't that impressed TBH.
