If a person was using a O/S other than a Microsoft product then it would make more sense to use Mozilla. The Mozilla browser is not designed to be used in a WIN32 environment. There is a required interpreter installed so the browser object can talk to the O/S. Whereas, the IE browser doesn't need the interpreter since it is so tightly integrated into the O/S.

People don't realize how many times they are actually using the IE browser object when working with their computer. It is truly mind blowing! The browser is that tightly integrated into the O/S.

For me it makes more sense to use a Browser designed by the O/S creator supported by the O/S creator, and troubleshot by the O/S creator. A third party solution has never been proven to be better than a first party one.

The IE browser has come a long way since the 4.xx model. It has many features and settings now that when used creates a much safer surfing environment than Ol' Mozzie will. Because of the stigma attached to the IE browser by the open source community many will just go with the open source solution instead of researching how to safely use the IE Browser.

For me, it makes sense to use the browser designed by the same people that created the O/S I am using.

Take Care,
Phil

Thanks,, I've been saying that for years!
I have proven time and time again that my IE setup is faster and safer than Firefox, you just need to know how to use it. The biggest problem is people don't update and apply security patches when they are available. Just look at the stats Smiley posted a few days ago,, 43.5 % of surfers still use IE 6 GEEEESH ad they wonder why they have so many issues!

You would have a real hard time convincing me of that. I have left using the win32 environment quite sometime ago. I have seen 1st hand on how unsecured outlook express is, and IE. If I use windows now, I use it on a partition that doesn't matter if I lose it or not. But to each his own, I am just stating my onion. Opera is also a good browser that works on multiple platforms.

With Vista and Norton 360, for almost a year, is TOTALLY the Fastest trouble-free
system I've had!

Browser may crash once in a while when surfing, but back to fast and no worries on re-boot.

Vista and $74.00 Norton 360 at Walmart is GOLD!

Last week I finally Downloaded IE 8.0

It forced many pages to side scroll which was a Pain when hand-approving sites
for Smileytraffic.

Only way to un-install was through Windows Update history online.
On Vista is shows no reference to IE in cPanel Add/Remove and no un-install in Programs folder.

Many things were added to IE 8.0, which I would never use.

Hi,

The first time I have posted here, I have been a member
of Smiley for awhile now and I am on the second month
of a partner upgrade. I would like to compliment you on a fine
traffic exchange.

IE 8.0 was actually hacked while Microsoft was demonstrating it
at a tech event.

IE will never be truly secure; but it isn't as bad as some scare mongers
say. I use IE for everything other than surfing traffic exchanges. Most
online banking will only recognize IE.

Vernon don't be to reliant on Norton it actually missed some nasties
when we tested it. Also anti virus software is usually pants at detecting
the biggest threats, root kits. Download the free for a month version of
UnHackMe.

I rather like IE 8 myself. Nice sleek interface, a lot of interesting features which might make browsing more convenient (like tab grouping by color), etc.

I still use Firefox 3 as my "main" browser as well as for surfing traffic exchanges though. Would be afraid to get out there in the TE land without NoScript protecting me laugh.gif

Have you tested Norton360?
I've had Norton SystemWorks 2002 and beyond and were just OK....

But really like 360, Computer runs as good and as fast as when I bought
this Inspiron 530 over a year ago. Never a problem.

With me hand-approving 125+ sites a day, not on Auto-Approve list, I
encounter a Shitload of Viruses and Trojans in a months time and delete/ban
those people.

I'm very Impressed by the 360, verses all other versions.


chadrew,

My Admin area works fine with 7.0, but for some reason with 8.0 it side scrolls about 30%???? most other sites show OK.

Plus I need a simpler browser without the ad-ons to move more quickly since just maintaining, sites, upgrades, reports, purchases, etc... takes on average, 3 hours a day, if I miss a day, that's a whole lot of catch-up!
