    For those that prefer the Firefox browser to IE, or for those that have never used it, you can participate in Firefox's attempt at breaking a World record for the most downloads in a single day by downloading Firefox 3.0 today!

    I'll try it. I use FF for surfing any time I want the history, etc. to wipe when I close the browser.

    I use Opera or IE7 for most other stuff. Since I stay logged on as administrator, I run them all restricted with [dropmyrights.exe]. I use DMR for Outlook too, so when e-mail links open a browser, it opens restricted. I forgot about it the other day when I kept failing to install a Flash upgrade... DOH!

    Can't you download it just once and transfer it to the others using a flash drive or CD? I guess they aren't networked, or that would do the trick too.

    Figures that this happened when Comcast was still dicking us around with no internet service. *Sighs* Oh well. I think the 30 machines at the store all downloading it helped a bit instead

    Supposed to be a new version of IE also. I like Firefox but it takes forever to load.

    I do love firefox (except for cookie management, I'll get to that in a sec), but as a general rule I never run the first new version of anything. Always wait and let all the other users find the bugs/holes.

    As for cookies, Netscape 6 used to have a cool feature that let you choose "always", "this once", "no", and "never" whenever you'd get a new cookie. It was a lot easier than going into the security options on a regular basis to build up your block-list.

    Firefox 3 loads quite fast and its memory footprint has also dropped amazingly. So much for their "no memory leaks" BS. The next version of IE, eight, won't be out for quite a while.
