Are you enjoying OS X Dave? I've been using it for 2 years (Since OS X 10.2). It's excellent.

What type of computer are you running it on?

I use Firefox because IE hates my computer. It won't let me open half the sites I use. O_o And if I click on a link so that something opens in a new window, the whole machine just clams up and dies.

Yes, we are riddled with viruses, they won't go away. tongue.gif

I use Firefox currently, but I'll be switching to IE7 when the beta comes out.

IE7 will be a tabbed browser, and will be (probably) integrated with Spynet..and IE is faster I'd say ohmy.gif

Safari has tabbed browsing, and it is really good, I couldn't live without it now!

Faster!?!? Internet Explorer is the single slowest, most annoying, crash-inducing browser I have ever dealt with in my entire life.

Yep, faster. Not *much* faster, but noticeably faster! The only annoying thing about IE for me is that it supports less web standards to firefox, but maybe IE7 will fix that smile.gif

And I bet firefox would crash too if it had a buggy spyware programs hooking onto it! blink.gif
