I agree. Also browsers are fun as well as a work tool. I enjoy messing about with different browsers. Once upon a time I wasn't aware there were alternatives to IE.

I am having a few issues with IE9 RC. I have a Weather Bug Gadget that I use that has a white box around it when IE 9 is installed. Also I have a Secure website I work on that IE 9 wont first remember the password but then wont let me into the website. I have found Chrome to be my best answer, however I have always liked IE.

Can someone give me some place to start to fix these issues?

I had to uninstall IE9. It killed Top Process and Uptime gadgets. They were working before install and they started working again after I uninstalled IE9.

I think we all benfit from competition.

+1 .... When the competition is gone .... there goes all goodies ... LOL

Probably among users who use the Windows 7 operating system.
Problem for Microsoft is that Internet Explorers share on Windows XP is shrinking & that will only accelerate as Internet Explorer 8 finds itself competing against rapidly improving modern browsers.
Let's not forget that Windows XP is shrinking as well

Try this for the box around your gadget: On the Desktop, hold 'Ctrl' and roll the mouse backwards until the faint box around the gadget (or any icons with boxes) disappear.
