Yeah cause Deamon tools works under Windows 7.....

if you want to mount images try the (free) virtual clone drive from slysoft instead --> SlySoft Virtual CloneDrive

I don't buy this one bit. Firefox 3.1 is very very fast. So much stuff does not work in Chrome there is no way you can properly claim it puts Firefox at the bottom of the pile. And nothing made by Apple ever should be claimed as "good" or anything other than "worthless" and "a waste of time".

Yup, plus the suggestion shouldn't have ever been made as Windows 7 is SUPPOSED to do it on its own.

Ya, I agree that windows should natively support mounting images. I think it doesn't because MS knows what that's mostly used for.

W7 can? Let us know how then.

Also, FF is much faster than IE8 (it has NOT been sped up. Its slower if anything). Chrome is quick, but just lacks a little in my opinion. I have not used Safari on a PC, so I can not comment on that.

Yeah Firefox has fell behind a bit on speed. According to tests I ran on Build 7057 a week ago or so on peacekeeper (FutureMark's browser benchmark) the current fastest Browser is Safari 4, followed by Chromium (nightly build of chrome), then chrome, then opera 10.0 (alpha), minefield (nightly build of FF), firefox, opera 9.64 (current version), IE 8.

So Firefox is still faster than IE8, and the current version of Opera (albeit slower than the alpha version of Opera), but it was far slower than Chrome or Safari were. If I remember right Safarigot a 1150ish, Chrome 800-900, FF 500-600 and IE8 a 350 or so on the benchmark.

Disclaimer: The firefox installs I tested had no add-ons, so it may be slower than IE8 with several add-ons, but was faster with no add-ons.

The bashing of Safari simply because its an Apple product really should be beneath you; especially as MAC OSX is not bad, at all. Regardless of personal opinions about apple it's the fastest browser at the moment, period.

I don't know of anything that doesn't work in Chrome (unless you're counting lack of add-on support) and Chrome is quite likely the most secure browser out there (ie. It's the only browser with no exploits found during the recent Pwn2Own).

Actually, Linux is the fastest I believe. Though OSX comes next mainly because of its kernal style.

Chrome is only secure now because not as many hackers have had time with it, and a lot less people use it than IE.

As for speed, I don't test, and my ISP and rig are fast enough that I would not notice the difference. I like FF, so I will stick with it.
