Can you be a bit more specific rather than just saying "a few" and "a lot"? Which OTS programs - what format of "Internet video files"? I've been using FireFox for several years now and it remains my "preferred" browser. Granted there are still some "Microsoft specific" sites out there that violate Internet standards - including several of the "dot gov" sites - but I can always load IE if I just have to look at them. I found it funny that I recently had to load IE to have a peek at the application for filing for Social Security on-line. Dumb, dumb, dumb - but what else should I expect from a government employee?
