Just a word of advice for prospective Mozilla users - make sure you get version 1.4, as anything later is still in beta testing.  Also, the default skin is horrible.  Go to View > Apply Theme and tick Modern, for a much nicer skin.   ;)

Well Simon, since I can't seem to fix IE6, do you think if I download Mozilla it will still work or should I try to sort out my problems with IE6 first.? You've got me convinced that Mozilla is a more bug free piece of software. ???

One other thing - when you install, you get options as to which components to install.  You can choose Browser Only, or Full Installation, or Custom.  I choose Custom, and just install the Browser and Mail Client.  Not the other bits.

It may be 13MB, Lona, but how many megabytes of patches do you think you will have to apply to Internet Explorer between  now and Christmas?  I chose browser only, because if there is  one thing I could praise Microsoft for it is the Outlook Express mail client.  I have tried the full-blown Outlook  2000, Pegasus and Eudora, but I always return to Outlook Express.  It's simple and does everything I want it to do.

Anyone thinking of trying Opera, I would start with version 6.06 without Java.  It's only around 3.5MB and I have found it to be the most stable version Opera has released.  In fact, I can't remember when it last crashed. :)

OK I found out how to do that OK, hey I like the save password option, handy for logging in here for instance.

I guess the more you use it the better you like it, I like how you can collapse the toolbars. As I have three monitors I can have IE:6 and Mozzila on different screens. Not that you would want too normally, but they do not conflict with each other whilst running at the same time. And unlike since I went onto IE:6, it does not show the icons on the lefthand side of Pal home page, Mozzila shows em OK. I had to down load Macromedia Flash player to be able to see and hear  :-\ sigs, maybe that was a mistake  ;D

Have you changed skins, Tony, or have you still got the horrible traffic lights?

View > Apply Theme > Modern, or if you want to be adventurous, Get More Themes.   ;)

When you go through Edit > Preferences, you'll be able to set your Home Page, and Default Search Engine.  Have fun - I know you'll like it!   ;) ;D

P.S If you go to View > Show / Hide, you can get rid of the Toolbars all together.

Yes it's looking good Simon,
Oh whilst surfing with Mozzilla, cookies don't show up in Emp Temp window, but of course you can zap em in Mozzila  ;D

Yes, you can set Moz to zap cookies at the end of each session.  I set mine to one day, otherwise you keep having to log into Pals.   :)

Told you it was good, Tony!   Have you tried the pop up stopper?  Better than any of the ones you can use with IE.  :D :D

Must set mine, pity you cannot select cookies to ignore getting zapped.

Not tried the pop up stopper yet.

Skin, gone for Lo-Fi, nice and crisp and clear

login ain't a chore with password saver enabled  ;D the more I see the more I like.

Do you use the mail client as your default client ?

Well guys I have Mozilla set up and still looking at all the features. I had a little problem logging into outlook express as it kept asking for all my email passwords where before I didn't need to. I couldn't get my hotmail acccount to download and had to do it via web. Outlook express wouldn't accept hotmail password yet I got in no bother through web but only with IE6.  I had absolutely no problem signing in to msn chat. Apart from that I like it and it is much faster.  Thanks Simon for suggesting it. :D
