Netscape now have version 8 which is a compromise between IE and firefox with security as a priority. i have been on it this morning and looks and works ok if you want to try it : http://browser.netscape.com/ns8/download/
What internet browser does everyone use? I am running Internet Explorer 6.
Never even considered using anything else, Dave got me to try Firefox the other day to see if it would cure a problem we are having. Thought that looked ok.
Are most people on IE6 and what are the benefits of being on a different browser?
I use Firefox 1.04 to access this site but IE6 for everything else. Most sites are
designed to run on IE, over 90 percent of PCs use it. I like the TAB facility of Firefox to quickly move around this site. If I encounter any problems useful to be able to I check it out on another browser.
The problem of using IE is that it is supposed to be less secure than other browsers, more susceptible to hackers etc. To run I think it also uses more of your machine's capacity. Probably not an issue with many people on a desktop computer.
It is a victim of its own success. As it is the most used browser, there are more people out there trying to produce nasties for it.
I use IE6 and a firewall and always keep it up to date with patches by regularly visiting the Microsoft website.
I haven't tried Firefox but have tried a couple of the others but returned to IE each time.
8O I use the pathetic AOL 9.0. It's a good job it is broadband because it takes so long to load and is always going to sleep if I leave it for any length of time. If I want to connect quickly just to check emails and ebay I use IE 6.0, but stick to AOL for the moment because of the McAfee firewall which is free with AOL and pretty good.
