Warning: It doesn't import your IE bookmarks if you have any. Well it does, but, it doesn't give you much of an option to use them.

Look at my bug about it (http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=77732) posted some time ago http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Personaly I would like a option not to anyway!

To maintain ability to se every page i use multiple brovsers.

But all browser programmers seems to think that "there can be only one"!

Chalk up another bug:

Image blocking is broken.

The most usefull feature, no banner ads http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/cool.gif

Is it really worth using? I'm still using IE and AT Guard, which blocks everything great.. whats so good about mozilla?

It's not microsoft and we'd all love to have something thats not Microshaft that works great.
Unfortunatley in the browsers IE still for me seems the best. Used both Mozi Opera netscape 6 at work and they just don't quite cut it.

try opera 5.11 ... it fixes lots of small bus that were in opera up to 5.01 and adds flash support http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

I love it

Wonder what lots of small bus are... http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

But to be honest, I liked Mozilla up til 0.8, but from that time I think the old Netscape guys started to come back in.

We now have the old NS 4.7x memory leak back, as well as other things going wrong.

I'm still testing it, but with less enthusiasm as the first times http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif

I don't know why you people fight it. Like it or not, IE is the most compatible, fully featured browser out there. I used Netscape for years until I switched to developing for Windows and I couldn't see content in MSDN. Everyone's going to make sure their site is compatible with IE because its the de facto standard; you can't say that about any of the other browsers.

Stick with what I've got then, Cheers chaps!

Amazing looks like the Java is broken as well. Off to the recycle bin. Well it was the nightly build after all, must have been asleep.
