Ok i'm finally going to try to get away from Internet Explorer, who should I use. Is Netscape still around and good. I want to use something simple.

Re: Browser Information

Unfortunately Netscape lost the plot and really doesn't cut the mustrad these days. But if you still want to go down that route
http://channels.netscape.com/ns/browsers/default.jsp

Netscape was based on the Mozilla code and out of that has also sprung Firefox, Which today seems to be the leading "alternate" browser (in my opinion it is supperiour to IE) and it has limited itself to just being a browser, so you don't have to worry about the email part of it. I'd recommend going with it.

Re: Browser Information

It also has themes which are pretty cool too, I wouldn't think Id dig that stuff in a browser but it seems to work well in this one, it's more then just changing photos

Re: Browser Information

I'm not a Geek, but I am using FireFox as well. I like it and recommend it! Can't beat the price either!

Re: Browser Information

Looks like the mozzila crew found a vulnerability in the latest releases of the browser when installed on a Windows XP computer

I'd recommend downloading version 9.2 (if you don't already have it. check 'Help' -> 'About Mozilla FireFox' from the drop down menus to be sure)
