    Dont know if any of you have found this yet but just found some cool features... If you have a scroll mouse, hold shift and scroll up or down, This will either advance or bring you back to previous pages...Hold control and scroll and it will make the text bigger/ smaller... Sorry if you guys already figured it out but its new to me...:D

    Well thanks, didn't know that about the text. Advancing forward and backwards, well I have buttone on the mouse that do that. Kind of gotten spoiled with it at work so bought a few for the house. Thanks for the font size.....

    IE does the forward and back page thing too with shift, but like the brother above, I have those buttons on the mouse too.

    IE7 also does the font thing, and also has tabbed browsing.

    So does IE6 ;) you just have to install Desktop Search

    Be warned though, its pretty annoying.


    Firefox already is what they are trying to make ie7.

    I've used firefox, didn't like it. Using IE7 now...at least they added the one thing I liked about firefox (tabbed browsing)

    well it's a bit late since you already have IE7 but avant browser is an IE shell and it is tabbed. was good if you like IE but want the tabs. might have to go check out IE7 myself. it would be hard to not use my firefox though.
