Re: List of web browsers for you all

he means msn...

anyhoo you're missing one of the best browsers going!
Sea Monkey.
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/seamonkey/

Its an evolution of the full mozilla suite, with all functionality there and less bloat.
It also has a very handy feature of having an auto systray function which allows it to stay partially in memory for quick launching.

Netscape 8.1 is also very good, it should be noted that there is a vast difference between netscape upto version 7.x and 8.x onwards

Re: List of web browsers for you all

Just had a look through the MSN browser 'features.' It would appear the only thing it has to offer is integrated MSN services. TBH, looks like a kiddies & n00bs browser to me.

Re: List of web browsers for you all

more secure, tabbed browsing, faster, more customizable (addons / themes / extensions), rss support, follows web standards to the letter, less bloaty. Are just some of the starters, pretty much everyone i know thats tried firefox has thanked me for the tip and stuck with it.
As for DAP, i've just checked there website and version 8 supports moz' and firefox

I was recommended by a FF lover to download a dl manager extention. I did this last week but I kept being prompted to download spyfalcon which is by modzilla, I assumed this was a part of it. Anyway as soon as I did this I started getting popups and waring bubbles from my tool bar saying that I have been infected with spyware and I am to download and (register) the most effcient removal program.

Now it's saying that if I do not do somthing about it soon my machine will be corrupt and damaged. All I can say is MODZILLA IS A PILE OF **** and anybody that recomends it does not know what they are on about, oh and dap 8 is not compatable with FF, another lie. All I can say is KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT BEFORE DISHING OUT ADVISE.

I have now uninstalled FF and im doing my best to uninstall spyfalcon, it keeps coming back all the time when I try to get rid of it. All I can say is I wish I stuck with my own instincts and stayed away from that modzilla rubbish. And yes, I got it through a link on this board. I AM ANGRY AND I MAY HAVE TO REINSTALL WINDOWS.

DAP 8 is- according to their own website- compatible with firefox, so perhaps before you accuse forum members of lying you should check that you know what you are talking about.

Oh and Spyfalcon is not a Mozilla program- a little research before you installed the software would have told you this.

ahh firefox must be evil then. Because of course there are no toolbars for IE that are bundled with spyware... oh apart from the 18 listed here as parasites. And then of course there are the numerous BHOs... but then i suppose if you install one of those it serves you right. But of course, as you downloaded someone containing spyware which was associated with firefox, that is Mozilla's fault and therefore Firefox is evil. Ah huh. I see the logic there.

Re: List of web browsers for you all

You're less likely to pick somthing up under firefox but it is still possible and should not be taken for granted that its 100% safe. Nothing truely is.
If you google for your known problem with the word remove, with it your bound to find how to get rid of it for good

thats the first result though i dont know the source so dont trust it as gospel
