Re: Anyone using Firebird?
Yeah, hear you on the non-install bit.
- It takes longer to load then IE6 at first start up. (Celeron 450, 64meg ram, 4mb video card, 98SE, 6 gig HDD) Not the fastest rig ever, but it suffices for regular internet work.)
- When launched, browser maximizes to desktop maximum. But then pressing F11 does not get rid of Windows title bar. (I first have to shrink the browser first, then press F11)
- I've never liked the mosaic/mozilla/netscape way of showing a 'place holder' gif of where pix should be before loading up. Useful for dial-up, as user can stop load of page and then select to show only pix (um, for pr0n no doubt )
Like I said, on a small desktop, the most handy feature is the scaleable fonts. Anti pop up is okay, but since I use Norton Firewall, it has that built-in for the most part as well (it doens't catch all, but do get most pr0n banners that invariably pop up). Still, I like this feature.
Way better cookie management, which is a HUGE plus.
I like your idea of replacing IE for security issues. But since I only surf 'legit' sites, I am not too worried about malicious code, altho I've been burned before w/ a java trojan.
For some reason, it does not work with my website, as my white font doesn't work. I don't know why yet, haven't looked at my page. But I know the HTML is messy as snot, so that might be my fault. Hehehe.
Okay, again, thanx. I'm looking forward to seeing version .8.
Maybe it's time I tried out mozilla in ernest? I just want a browser, not an email client/usenet reader tho.
Maybe I'll throw in 'thunderbird' just for kix later.
Be fast or be last.
