I am trying to squeeze another year out of this W/98 machine so I dumped Internet Exploder and loaded Firefox (based on reviews here) So far so good. I am 36 hours without a crash, closing on the record.
Good choice, Greg. I've been using Firefox for a couple years now, and I have had no problems with it. The good folks at Mozilla seem to have figured out how to stop pop-ups dead in their tracks 'cause I almost never get any while using Firefox. Once in a while a web page won't load properly so I use I.E. to view it...and whad'ya know...I get pop-ups. (and pop-unders too) I guess the Micro$oft guys are too busy fixing security flaws to spend the time to build a good web browser.
Be sure you run a spyware remover before you move to Firefox. some spyware will cause Firefox not to load a site, forcing you to open IE which it can control. Go to the digital goddess site and get on from her. komando.com
