Default Saw MSN 8 today

Not bad browser...not bad at all.

Shame about the 'non-free' bit.

___
if anyones wondering, no, I don't use IE anymore, I use Mozilla 1.2. I'd sure try (and very possibly like) that one if it was free though.

Yeah...as if IE6 could get that good. Hah.

No, it's a new browser. I couldn't really say much about it right at the moment.
Its also an email client and junk, but big surprise <g>
Lots of semi useful features...
Pretty much though, its for MSN subscribers, or idiots who would pay monthly fees for a browser....mmm.....yeah

I'm still an MSN dial-up subscriber, heh, wonder why I pay that if I never use it. But I'll stick to good ol'e IE6 and Outlook, never failed me.

Outlook is probably the email client most prone to executing viruses

LMAO, yep! ehehehe, oh well, I think Norton Systemworks 2003 is enough to stop em', it scans e-mails anyways, but yeah, it is kinda dangerous. lol. But I know who I am getting e-mails from.

No, it's just simple enough for idiots to use that don't know how to ignore email attachments...

there were problems that had nothing to do with attachments. i think it had something to do with Outlook running scripts found in the email message itself.

i know i heard about cases like this though, because i thought it was impossible to get a virus without downloading an attachment.

I have MSN 8 and I use the mail client it has for my MSN mail and I enabled the junk mail filter and I don't get any more junk mail...works like a charm. My friend on AOL 8 is always telling me he has to spend 5 mins a day deleting junk mail. Hahaha........such a shame. Hopefully AOL 9 will fix that for 'em. AOL is damn expensive now too!! At least MSN is only 22 bucks a month.
