lol Rin... virtually.... still using it on this ole internet machine, but 80% of the places I visit dont support it, so I have slowly been weening myself onto IE5 (courtesy of AOL Disk, still running win95 on this ole box). When the rebuilt box gets here, will be running Xp Pro, so I doubt I will go back to NN at all actually.... ~weeps~ oh well.. times are a changin....

VP, why not run Mozilla, or Phoenix (which will eventually replace the Mozilla as a standalone Browser, no mail/newsgroup components.)... ?

Oooh... 2 Gig a ram and SATA Hard Drives... Now I'm jealous.

I highly recommend Firebird (new name for Phoenix) as a default browser. I've switched over from IE and have been using it for a month or so. Yes, it's only version 0.6 and it still has little bugs here and there, but it's a much better experience than I've ever had with IE.

Use it in good health Vog.

Firebird is fantastic, except it has many problems with the Flash installation.
