Your using IE aren't you Bob? Well MyIE anyway?

I answer rhetorical questions for my own enjoyment.

Slim Browser -- I 've pretty much made the decision to convert to Firefox -- gimme a couple days, no time to configure right now. Anyone recommend an email prog but only as functional as OE?

One thing that has me pretty worried id SP2 coming out with its enhanced security functions, but disenhanced everything else... Currently I'm planning on NOT using it.

Looks like an easy one to fix. Probably just uncheck "Enable third party browser extensions" in Internet Options/Advanced. You don't even need to mess with the registry to do that.

Personally, I do like Firefox, but my favorite is Opera version 7. Not bloated like version 8 but also very funtional. Heavier than IE, but about the same as Firefox.
