    ok, I've seen some post here regarding spyware, hijackers etc recently and some of you have recommended
    using Mozilla to replace Internet Explorer. WELLLL, I downloaded it yesterday, installed it....and its the
    best damn thing I've tried in a long time(pc wise of course).

    FOR everyone using Microsoft Explorer: CHANGE TODAY TO MOZILLA FIREFOX. It takes a couple of minutes to download and
    install. I've already deleted the IE shortcuts on my desktop.

    I thought i knew better and never even looked into this browser, but now i feel like an idiot

    I'm using it now, it seams to work ok, the reason I am using it, is because IE is so prone to viruses and trojans and the like,and I'm freakin sick of it! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    it should run faster since less crap seems to load than with IE. Its running very fast on my pc (DSL).

    The multiple tab function is killer. No more 10 different windows open!

    also, go to Tools, Extensions, Click on "get more extensions" , pick and choose what options you'd like to add. great.

    I too am sick of all the hijacker crap thats out there. Sick of it.

    You can choose not to have links underlined...I just did that and it's a lot cleaner IMO.

    tools >>> options >>> general >>> "Fonts and colors". At the bottom where it says link colors there is a check box to have links underlined or not.
