As a 25 year web developer and IT specialist all I can say is don't use it. It not only has been a bug filled app for most it's existence but it's cost companies millions imo. The fact it doesn't work here is an example. If a site isn't working in IE most companies would call their web developer and have him do long and painful coding to make the site work in IE, often doubling a company's expense for a website. On a couple projects I feel I spent as much time making the app work in IE as in all the other browsers combined. The others have always followed rules and guildelines (by W3C?, never quite sure) for development. IE, even with members on the board that decides these rules and guidelines, has consistently branched off and done one or two things "their" way. Well their way requires extra programming, extra programming cost a lot of money, etc.... IE sucks. I wonder what the new browser will do that is outside the box that makes most old sites running on it crash and need a costly update.

Firefox has served me very well for the last 10 years or so . never liked IE & never used it . google chrome is another one that works pretty well .

the only problem with Firefox & ICmag is the chat room , i can hardly ever get in chat even after unblocking .

Yes, I meant use Firefox (not netscape, its precursor). Chrome works really well and fast, but then you can expect Google to be monitoring and recording everything you do with it.

Thanks Skip.

Yes, Chrome is fast and stable, and just FYI, Google has so far, not sent me anything targeted ever. Obviously because it all gets mainlined direct to the NSA

Unlike Amazon, which seems to know everything you've ever searched for and throws up ads for those recently viewed amazon items on sites you've never been to before.

You can't escape your online history anymore unless you take a lot of steps to prevent it.

https://www.ubuntu.com/ You won't be sorry. There are other Linux OS, Mint for example, but I like Ubuntu personally. And Firefox comes preloaded too. And the price is right too, free. There is nothing that I have found that Windows did that Linux can't after running it for a few years. For some users, maybe there would be maybe. Me, nothing. But if there is something MS you just have to have, you can download the program called "wine" and that will run it.

I just got tired of all that MS bullshit. I haven't looked back. Linux rules! Apparently, Linux is designed more like Apple and not as vulnerable to virus too. Most viruses are written to work in IE, the industry leader, too, of course.

It asks you if you want to dual boot too, so you keep windows if you want, then does it for you, but you may need to partition your hard-drive to make room for it first. I did, and if I did it, anyone can. I did that partitioning stuff on another laptop that I put Mint on, and kept a Winduhs 7 copy, just in case this Ubuntu thing didn't work out. But it has.

So, on this laptop I just bought a small , cheap 160GB hard-drive from ebay for it, just to put Ubuntu on it. Dirt cheap too. Like $20 or something. Computer then ran, and still runs, like a brand new computer, fast. If you do that, just open up the back of your laptop you have now, and write down all the numbers on from the hard-drive on your machine, then order one. Then plug and play the new one. Easy peazy.
