    Sorry. I'll stick to my Mozilla Firefox browser that's been tweaked to include multiple time zones, Screengrab!, AccuWeather radar, and PicLens. It kinda makes the new 'Chrome' browser from Google look lame.:tup:

    Firefox is still the browser to use. But there's nothing wrong with running multiple browsers and having some healthy competition. You should still check out Chrome just to see how fast it is at rendering websites.

    Hi Ray, I found this one to be a comparative memory hog, (for now), which probably explains why they have yet to crank out a Mac or Linux version yet. Just the same, good to see some more competition for Mickey Soft out there. I'll also be sticking with Mozilla's Firefox for now and watching google for announcement of some humongous gosh-awful great web app tied into Chrome that I just can't live without. ;)


    Hey - it could happen. :lol:

    Have to agree with Ray on this one, give Firefox a try - have been running it since it came out of initial beta and *really* like it. (Occasionally you do have to load IE for some sites that insist on running MickeySoft specific stuff - but that is very rare for me these days).

    I love it.....It's def going to compete with Firefox...in style and security. FF is still top dawg, but Google will be a close second in no time. And in typical Google fashion....It's simple looking.
