My IE and Netscape would go into the ozone at irregular but frequent intervals requiring that I shut down my DSL modem and network hub and reboot my computer to restore functionality - Firefox seems unaffetected by whatever the problem may be - oh - any another + - it is not a Micro$oft P.O.S.
Forget what you might have thought about Netscape in the past (as Mozilla is basically an Open Source version of that old browser) I've yet to find anything that doesn't work properly with it. It also checks for new versions automatically and all the patches it has downloaded have been only a couple of k a piece.
Now if they would just add the mouse 'gesture' shortcuts from Opera (right mouse + sweep left for back etc.) I would be a very happy boy!
By right clicking and scrolling the mouse wheel simultaneously over an image you can instantly resize it to whatever magnification you want. It's great for shrinking large photos which stretch out the forum because the window resizes with it. It's also good for enlarging little pictures so that they are easier to see.
I'm definatly a Firefox convert and now I'm off to download the extensions that Nuro suggested...
