Really Trying to Make the Switch

Help me break my IE habit...

I just can't seem to do it! I like the status quo, and have to much else going on to adapt to the learning curve. I want my toolbars JUST like they are, but none of the security holes.

Any advice on switching? I think I'm deciding on firefox (though opera is a close second). I'm still hooked on those pretty green pixels, and "blogger" button of the G toolbar...is there any hope for me?

My other biggest frustrations seem to be managing my favorites, and the "links" bar that I use VERY often for quick access.

Has anyone tried MSN Explorer? I found it very nice and a great alternative to IE.

I'm kinda hoping this is a joke, but, MSN Explorer is just a pretty wrapper for regular explorer. It adds links to MS propertites for shopping, travel and mail. But it still has all the same security vulnerabilities because it is still IE.

Same here. Tab browsing was a gift that made me stop using I.E.

Tabs are so nice! That middle click to open a new tab for a new link without disturbing your current reading flow is just so handy...

Extensions like, User Agent Switcher and SwitchProxy can do wonders.

Especially if your UA is Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.google.com/bot.html)

Alrightly. When a thread is done and wandering...it's time to call it done.

Done. ;-) Thanks!
