  2. Thanks for the heads up, it seems a lot faster [XP] and looks nice.
  3. Doesn't look like it will work with Win 2000 Pro.
  4. WTF uses IE today?

    Are you serious?

    With free Firefox, Opera and Safari, why would any sane person even consider using IE?

    I use IE and ask myself the opposite question daily.

    Why would anyone ever use anything else?

    IE just works and always has (since version 5.5). You never come across a site that looks bad in IE and as long as you aren't stupid enough to click on the occasional popup that comes through, it isn't as vulnerable as everyone says it is.

    75% of people use IE.
  7. Even if you prefer FF, you need to keep IE on your rig. There are still LOTS of pages which don't render properly with FF... "IE Tab" add-on is good for those.

  8. sounds like AOL haha
  9. Why won't it work with W2K ?
    Should I just go ahead and try it?

    May be it is time to upgrade to XP? :D
