You know me - I can be slow in some matters. I agree with what you say -
it's a much like IE but without all the stodge. I'm probably going to =
keep
it and relegate IE to background duties only..

I suppose I'm a little surprised that you've only just discovered =
Firefox,
John <g> - it's been available in stable form for some time.  The Beeb =
are a
bit behind too.  I've been using it for at least a couple of years - =
much
lighter on its feet than IE, more configurable.  Unfortunately you'll =
need
to keep IE to be able to access some sites which are written in
non-standards-compliant code (usually a result of using a MS product) =
which
requires an equally non-standards-compliant browser.  And, of course, =
you'll
still need IE to be able to get all those MS security fixes.

I use Firefox for 99% of any browsing I still do in Windows, and 100% =
under
Linux.
