Well it you don't mind putting up with the pop ups my friend then keep the IE al I am saying is that it costs nothing to try something else like CF and your IE sites can be carried over if yous so wish.

It would take you a very short period of time to do that but the choice is yours as always I am just saying my experiences with the other browsers has been good and bad but the more they develop them it seem s to me the harder they are to use.

Now I have Cyberfox I get straight to the point no ads pop ups and just generally find it more user friendly.

Now apparently they are still working on it and unless they wreck it then I am staying with it. So really I suppose it is a matter of personal choice if you find Firefox ok then all well and good it was as I said just a suggestion for the OP.
For the record, I don't find Firefox OK (it's cookie handling sucks). That's why I was asking about Cyberfox.

Ok Jeannie well I cannot answer it because I haven't been using it for tat long so cannot really say I just find it is a bit of fresh air over those other lumbering browsers.

Having said that in 10 it does have a it of a lag starting up but that could be my machines the 7's are ok.
