    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    let see
    a) it looks dumb as hell
    b) i keep on getting aol links added to my favorites
    c) its security is poor
    d) it keeps adding stuff to my links!
    e) its slower loading than mozilla/netscape
    f) proxys are slower than on Netscape
    e) it wont let me browse netbios as well so i can't hack as well if im on mozilla

    IE 6 and Netscape 7 are both on my comp. I use them for viewing websites and making sure things are browser freindly.

    Both are very nice.

    *Cough* Opera *Cough* ;)


    G Smith - if you want to make sure stuff is browser-friendly, Opera is the go - if it looks right in Opera, it is right. :).

    Computer Active magazine (which always provide good sound advice) reviewed both mozilla and opera to be better than IE. I haven't got one of these because i can't really be arsed to install one - I mean IE works well - but maybe i should tryone and see what happens!

    if IE wasn't forced on you with windows, would you be so eager to use it?
    Yes, it is excellent.
