OK, this is really off topic here..
..but I thought I'd change up the pace alittle bit, and see what kind of browsers you all use for the net and what kind of email programs you use. :idea:
For those of you that arent involved in computers on a daily basis like some of the rest of us, or are just stuck in the same old Internet Explorer mode..there are alot of options out there.
Everybody knows about internet explorer... :bonk: ..and thats about all I have to say about that crash-happy program..
Mozilla Firefox & Thunderbird.. www.mozilla.org
is a browser that is much more light-weight and not near as crash happy. You can customize it with only the extension (options) that you want. The basic browser will do you just fine, and of course its free, but you can add all sorts of options for flash/word/bookmark options, and tons more. They've also got a external email program available called Thunderbird..works similar to OE, but again, is more user friendly and wont hang up as much. It also has the built in tab feature, with instead of opening up links in different windows or having to have multiple IE windows open all the time..everything is opened in 1 window, with Tabs available to view the different pages.
Mozilla does tend to cause some sites to not load up properly, unless you have the correct extensions installed, but thats easy once you get the hang of it.
Crazy Browser.. www.crazybrowser.com
This is the one I use on a daily basis..It looks nearly identical to IE, and functions in a similar manner, and also has the popup stopper and tab feature. Works well if your used to IE, but want more options with less problems.
Netscape..Everybody knows about netscape...not as popular as IE, but if you're used it, it can be a nice alternative from the norm.
There are other options out there to make your internet more enjoyable, and provide a nice change.
I was reading on another bike forum, in their general discussion area, where this was brought up by someone complaining of problems with IE..so I thought I'd share this here and see what you all use.
