What are the extra features ? Would it be like using 10% of them 90% of the
time or using 90% just 10% of the time ? What I like about Firefox (I'm
still unsure about Thunderbird and I'm waiting for Joe 90 to come out) is
the sheer speed. Everything just seems to happen quicker than OE6. Plus you
can change the themes (although that's a minor point).
I used to use Opera but than it's Java implementation stuffed my machine up
although probably I installed it wrongly.
Well, I have my browser, mail and news in a 4MB download, as opposed to
just the browser in a 4mb download, then another 5.4 for the email client,
plus having to download extensions jsut to replicate functions already
available in Opera eg customiseable pop-up blocking, mouse gestures, IRC,
re-open closed pages, disabling plugins with two clicks, customiseable
layout of the browser, ability to change both themes and color schemes of
With regards to java, if you already have it on your machine, then you
don't need the java version of Opera. I will be sticking with Mozilla, but
I really can't see me staying when it appears to offer a lot less than I
am already used to.
Always proof read carefully in case you any words out
