I'd like suggestions on other browsers I can download (free is good) and use insead of IE. I Hate IE, keeps locking up. If you could also include where to download from I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

Firefox or Netscape.

Why does IE lock up on you?

Mozilla Firefox is the best around. IE does nothing but crash and kill computers, avoid it like the plague.

....I am experiencing more problems with firefox then IE

It's slower to me. Previewing images for some reason do not fully load sometimes.

I like it as I am still using it but I am just not all the way sold on it yet.

There is also Opera and I found nothing wrong with it and frankly do not know why I stopped using it.

Most of the time this is caused by sloppy coding on the part of the person writing the page. IE will read about anything you throw at it even if it doesn't meet standards.

When Gates tried to take over the world they cane up with a lot of tags that were Microsoft standard but not html standard. Back in the "old days" we wrote to standard so it showed correctly in Netscape / Mozilla and things didn't show properly in IE.

Firefox for me had never ran less than 100% I never have issues with it on any of my machines. Great browser. Internet Exlporer? what is that? =P

I have it running on 4 systems.
2 WinXp Prof.
2 Win2K

Try it out, Enjoy.

Foxfire is a great browser but the one problem I had is when I try and add a photo from my portfolio to one of these threads it won't do it where as IE will.

Foxfire = http://www.mozilla.com

Opera is a great browser. No problems that I know of.

Opera = http://www.opera.com

Scott,

The problem you mention is in how Netscape/Moxilla and firefox/mozilla handle the javascripting.

This board and others are set to use Microsoft's (version) of java.

This has been mentioned a number of times in the past, but I cant remember which thread or who posted it first.
