    Alternative to IE?

    Just curious as to what alternative web browsers people use in plce of IE. I've had a real pain in the last couple of weeks with IE stopping me getting full access to some sites and pages within them - such as Yahoo live FF draft.
    I was thinking about downloading an alternative but the only one that comes to mind is Mozilla Firefox.
    So any info that people can give on that or others would be welcome - let me know any pros and cons please.
    Thanks

    Re: Aleternative to IE?

    Firefox is the best. Get it. Other alternatives are opera and netscape off the top of my head. I don't like either but that's just me. It's all a matter of preference.

    Diddo on Firefox.
    Plus Mozilla has tons of great add-ons for Firefox.
    I use "download status bar" and "answers" regularly.

    Re: Alternative to IE?

    ok, so sounds like Firefox could be the one. Is it easy to import my favourites/bookmarks into it from IE, or will I have to do that manually?

    Yes once you install it, open it up and click on file/import....very simple. ;D

    I have used firefox for quite some time, and I have never looked back.

    I've heard some say positive things about Opera also, never tried it myself though.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Firefox is decent...lots of issues with it they are patching all the time, but its painless.

    Opera is also free and always was a leader in features.....super fast too.

    there are other browsers but getting to one of those two should help.
