Browsers

Since there are so many browsers available now, I decided to make some test runs to see which I like the best. I had been using Firefox for awhile, but, after hearing so much about Opers, I decided to try it. I've found that it operates a little differently. My main peeve is with Yahoo! I attempted to download the Yahoo! toolbar so that I could use it with Opers, and kept getting a message that my computer doesn't meet the desired requirements(which it does). I know that they want you to just use IE, but I have some issues with IE. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Opera is incompatible with a lot of things. It is actually my favorite browser because it's the fastest, and because its wand works better than any other browser password manager that I'm aware of. But unfortunately, YTB doesn't work with Opera. Neither does SiteAdvisor, nor LinkScanner. Of course Opera is also the most secure of all browsers, partly because it doesn't support anything, so LinkScanner becomes much less necessary. For the sakes of SiteAdvisor and LinkScanner, IE6 was until recently my primary browser. Now I have an autobrowser called OUGO, which surfs a few PTS sites while I'm asleep. It's built on an IE shell, so running IE can actually interfere with OUGO's settings. Firefox is my primary browser now, though it's one of my least favorite.

I really like what I've seen from Opera so far, santuccie. I have IE7, but I only use it mainly for a gamesite that I frequent which does not support anyother browser.

The Yahoo bar might be having a conflict with Opera. I know when I downloaded FireFox and Opera when I got a new hard drive the Yahoo toolbar came with one of them and it completely screwed up my system so I had to go through and delete all the Yahoo components until I got to the one that was messing up my settings. You can email or LiveHelp Yahoo to see if they have any suggestions or check the Yahoo Answers forum to see if thee is anything posted there. Good luck!

I have Firefox and Safari...and I've had heard of how good Opera is...I might have to ask about this with my friend about it though before I download it...since I have a Mac computer --no can do IE--my Mac wouldn't like it--even though I do have a Duo Core Intel processor so Windows capable...my friend though is so anti-windows / IE though--says once you open up a Mac to either you flagging down viruses galore

How is your Firefox works and it has clear images???? I also use Netscape Browser Ver 9 and it works nicely.

Personally I am not a very big fan of IE, because I have had a lot of problems with it in the past, with bugs, running slowly, viruses, and other random things. I very much prefer Firefox, just because it has so many really nice features. I am especially fond of tabbed browsing, because I HATE having a million separate windows open. I also like the Stumble! feature because it gives me something to do when I am bored... Honestly I haven't even heard of Opers, so maybe I will check it out.
