Ok some have been talking about firefox, I use MSN and windows live with IE7 and am gettign discussed with it as it is slow to easy to close and keeps stripping my images when I want to send them with a e-mail. question is can you import your favorites, address book to firefox or what not familar with firefox at all.
You can learn all you want about FF here:
I have used it now for nearly 5 years and love it! I hardly ever use IE any longer.
Firefox is a browser and likely will not fix the problems you are having with MSN, Windows Live, and email.
I recently installed Firefox. During the installation, it imported the settings, bookmarks, favorites, etc. from IE to Firefox.
firefox is the best! i have used it for about 3 years now....
As stated, firefox may not solve all of your problems. I like the spell check feature ... makes me look like a spelling genius on the forums.
I use Windows Live with Firefox and it works great....
I only use IE at work because I'm forced to do so. I've used Firefox at home for a long time. IE7 only incorporated tabbed browsing because it was so popular in Firefox. Also, Firefox can make use of Greasemonkey scripts that add tons of functionality.
As stated above, when you install Firefox you will be offered the option to import all of your favorites from IE.
Once you get Firefox installed, switch to Thunderbird for your email - dump Outlook or Outlook Express. You'll be glad you did.
[/Stepping down off of the soapbox...]
Thanks for the replys. I think the better half is about to switch all three computors over as she is also haveing problems with IE or something stripping the images out of some of her favorites. If I use thunderbird do I have to use a different id. or does it stay the same.I am going over to the other thread to read more about it tonight.
If I understand what you mean by id, yes, Thunderbird would be set up using the same email settings as whatever application you use now. Your email address will stay exactly the same.
That info just pushed us closer to the switch over I think it will happen over the weekend.
+1 for FireFox
I also recommend firefox. Do keep in mind that thunderbird (email client) does not have a calender as useful as outlook for networked scheduling and meetings etc. Other than that, you should be fine with both of them. Firefox 3 is in beta but is turning out to be much better than Firefox 2 so hopefully, in a month or so you should be able to get it. (Don't recommend it right now as its in beta and there are several known bugs).
I have used it for several years and love it. Keep your Internet Explorer Icon handy though. A few of the websites for bills that I pay online won't work with Firefox.
I haven't tried Thunderbird. I had always used Eudora in the past. I never have used Outlook except at work where I have no choice.
I use FF and would never go back to IE. It is fully customizable and not all "LOCKED UP" by BIG BILL. I love it and also use Thunderbird too. (Mail program)
I use firefox for almost everything. We have a few programs at work that require and ONLY work with IE6 so I only use it for those situations.
