Phoenix has replaced Mozilla as the open-source browser. It's built on Mozilla code, it's just uberly-streamlined. No installer, even--just extract the zip file and run it. Good Stuph.

There was one real security hole in Mozilla.

And it was fixed in... uhh... like 23 minutes.

that is the beauty of open source I think you got guys that are committed to a good product and not just committed to sucking the cash out of the user

One thing to consider... Mcafee used to do this and I think Norton still does. You can hit their website and do an online, real time scan of your machine via their website. That way you don't have to buy or install any extra software.

Anyone know if you can still do this? I think I saw it on Norton's site still.

Thanks for the heads up, I never really thought about using anything other than IE, didnt see the need/point. Well its now called Mozilla Firebird due to copyright stuff, and Im really liking it, dl new themes, even dl it in French and all is good

I really have no complaints about Norton on my system, everything seems to run plenty fast. Not sure why some people have problems? And I only have an AXP1700 with DDR266
