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

Firefox 2 at 1024 X 768 resolution on my old Sony 19" Flat Screen CRT at 120Hz refresh rate. The main reason I like Firefox better than IE is it's text handling while zooming text. IE wants to make you scroll the page horizontally while Firefox doesn't. Opera is probably better at this than Firefox but I keep coming back. Still have to get about closer than 10" or so to see anything but at least I don't have to scroll horizontally! Yeah, I'm blind but still kicking.

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

Call me old school, but I have IE on all my computers here at home (five with various resolutions- 17" monitor for one, three Trinitron 21" monitors, and a 26" LCD HDTV set to 1366x768) and we use it exclusively at work. I need to have what the apps are written for at work for compatability reasons so I stay with that.

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

Am now giving firefox a go, tried Safari for a while but really did not like it. Have used various Opera versions for the last five years or so and so Firefox is a bit complicated/unfamiliar, the jury is still out as to which is better for me!

I think if you give FF a little time and tinker with some of their add-ons/extensions... you'll love it. It's the next best thing since whatever was before sliced bread, if you ask me.

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

Am willing to give FF some time, it does seem a bit quicker at rendering pages than Opera, also the startup time is quicker. I do however have some issues with FF. For some reason it will not remember my password info for my banks site, it actually does not ask whereas Opera did, not a big problem but just more to remember myself. One feature that I really liked about Opera was the 'copy to note', notes are located in the sidebar and I could either highlight text or right clicking on a link I could save it to the notes and then later drag them across into emails or when adding links here etc, probably there is a way to do the above with FF but have not really has the time yet to investigate the add ons much. The spell check is great though, will have to see if it will correct my badly written Finnish.

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

It must be a setting somewhere with the password memory. It asks me every time the first time I enter a username and password. And it works on my bank site fine.

And yes... I imagine there is some sort of add-on that will do your notes. There's kind of a good side and a bad side with those add-ons. The good is there is a lot to choose from to cover nearly anything you can imagine. The bad is there are too many.

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

1280 x 1084, and I use Firefox. I have some really nice Grease Monkey scripts for use in MySpace. They make life much easier.

I use Firefox because it is more stable/secure than IE, and I can use add-ons for free. You have to pay for the limited amount available on IE.

Also, I browse from Sandboxie after having my computer hacked in April. It creates a virtual browser environment that I dump after each session.
