    not a fan of the banners etc. IDK if its like that in the Windows Version, but i got it for Mac, and it didnt seem like it could do anything (that i did) that Firefox couldnt do.
    I acctually just (just as in today, lol) made the switch from Firefox back to Macintosh's normal browser, Safari.

    The banners are gone now. They made it free (like free beer) a month or so ago.

    oooooo, might have to give it a go. I liked it, but the banners were hard to use, it was hard to concentrate on what i was reading.

    IE7 Beta 1 was put up on MSDN today. It's much nicer than I expected. :big grin:

    No banners is nice, but it's still what it is. It's still better than IE, of course, but it's basically just a non-mac Safari: nicely polished, but ultimately :weak:

    I've got FF to actually block more ads and abnners and popups than Opera does, so I'm starting to use FF more now. Opera is nice if i want a fresh looking "pretty" browser. FF is more barebones raw speed on my computer, since without all the ads and stuff it loads faster than Opera.

    Opera rules. Faster than IE and FF, uses fewer resources, and unlike FF you don't have to put together a patchwork of crappy plug-ins to make it feature complete.

    But they are dropping support for 2000. That should be a little intresting in the corperate world. There are still quite a few computers that use 2000, don't think that was the best move by MS on that one.

    Most companies switch their desktop OS in conjunction with hardware refreshes. Most companies swap out hardware every 3-6 years (depending on lease/purchase/depreciation/etc), so those that are still running 2000 will probably go straight to Vista when their cycle comes back around. I saw the same thing with NT4/XP.
