It's the machine that goes "BING!"

In other words, I wouldn't trust it.
According to google, it's a new Microsoft search engine. Not a browser, then, and you certainly wouldn't need it.

Quoting Dorothy Ingram-Gorban <dorothy.ingram-gorban@xxxxxxxxx>:


Read your Post, since I got a new pc windows 7, pc called dell I seem to have little choice it seems to insist on something called Bing! can any person tell me please what this Bing is? Have Dell done a deal with it so new users cannot escape it? I AM loading Ii.e.8 but still finishing up with Bing, just what is Bing please? Dorothy

Subject: Experiences with different web browsers and JAWS


Hello list.

I've often thought it would be nice to do away with Internet Explorer  and
use something that's smaller, more compact and quicker, and,  according to
many, more secure. The thing that's really held me back  is that IE, of
course, has very good native JAWS scripts. I did fiddle  with firefox a
few years ago and found the experience a little bit  frustrating. So, what
I'm wondering is, what experiences have people  had using the other common
browsers around nowadays (Chrome, Firefox  and Opera are mostly what I'm
considering) and their functionality  with the JAWS system? Any
recommendations or thoughts, be they for   browser, settings, add-ons,
etc, would be greatly appreciated. For  information, I'm using JAWS 9 and
Windows XP at present. Thanks.
