Re: What browser do you use and what resolution do you view?

I'm using IE6 with sp2, which I was happy with until I started reading this thread. So what's so terribly wrong with this?

Dual 19" CRT monitors with screen resolution of 1024 by 768 each. One of the monitors is a graphics grade Samsung which with calibration is extremely accurate. I hate the day when it dies and I'll have to replace it.

Re: What browser do you use and what resolution do you view?

It's not that IE is that bad, but others are better in several peoples eyes.

I find Firefox faster and more versatile than IE. Firefox offers extensions that you can add-on to create a really nice application for yourself. There are several extensions that serve me very well and actually I'd be lost without them being a webmaster. I also have a button on FF that in one click it renders the same as IE would, one more click and I'm back to FF, all within the FF browser frame. Of course, tabbed browsing is fabulous! IE7 offers tabbed browsing, but it still lacks a lot that FF offers. FF is just plain easier to work with after you use it for a while.

Then there's Thunderbird for email... miles better than Outlook or Outlook Express. Of course that's all my opinion.

Opera from version 3x onward, for news and mail too since they introduced M2 mail client. On my ancient SONY CRT 19" monitors, I view at 1152x864 which I find comfortalbe enough.

Just downloaded/installed IE 7.

The toolbar layout is going to take some getting use to. Hopefully, I can reconfigure it to something I'm more comfortable with. Seems that it runs faster than IE 6. Outlook express seems slower opening some but not all emails. Wonder if IE7 is doing something in the background that's causing that.

Yup, the layout is definitely different. I'm not sure on OE, I haven't used it in years. IE and OE must use more resources somehow since they run slower than non-Microsoft products, but I'm not positive.

Jim, if you ever try Firefox and Thunderbird, you may never go back to IE.

Count me in as a long time FF user. I've got IE installed for testing but like Sonnie the IE tab works well enough that I seldom have to bother opening up IE6 or 7.

It took me a while to use the tabbed browsing...can't do without now!
