    I'm using Opera 6.1....fantastic...font rendering is much better than Mozilla....and Evolution as an email/management client is really good....

    What's everyone using??

    Well I guess this makes at least two of us using Opera (6.05 here)! Not sure what the prob was with my I.E. but it was freezing up on a regular basis. I went on a search a couple of months ago and decided it was easier to use Opera than try and kill what ever bug had attacked I.E.

    So far I am very happy with Opera: it works faster and smoother than I.E. ever did and it has more "bells and whistles". Not sure why, but I still have trouble with some javascript but I can usually work around that.

    I recently had someone tell me that I should try Incredimail as an email program but have so far had no probs with Outlook so I'll prolly stick with that for now.

    Im using Phoenix (lightweight version of mozilla) as mozilla takes a good 20secs to load on both windows and linux. (longer on linux funnily enough) wtf is up with that crap eh?

    Havnt tried opera since, ****, back in the early days of its introduction. Didnt like it much, ill have to give the new version a go.
    Cant get evolution 1.2 working in dropline, but its what id like to use. :)

    I have mozilla, phoenix, opera, lynx, links and konqueror (kde-3.1 version), most of the time I use konqeror.
    You can get good fonts in mozilla, it takes abit of work and the latest versions of freetype and fontconfig.

    Usually, Konqueror is the fastest when loading sites, but it doesn't have that good text quality. Mozilla's text quality in Linux is exactly the same as in Windows Also, Mozilla is fairly fast with loading times, both initial and page loading.

    So therefore, Mozilla is my choice when it comes to quality.

    Really?
    How do you explain this screen shot?
    Maybe you just don't know how to set up your fonts.

    The text can still be legible, but only Mozilla can display text the same way as Windows browsers view it, fontwise. Opera 6.11 is in the same situation.

    PrairieDawg :

    DONT use Incredimail. Just don't. For a laugh, download it and then check out it's EULA. It's gotta be one of the more invasive one's I've ever seen. I spent AGES cleaning out my friends system after she installed it... it wasn't pretty. Anyway, that was totally off the topic.........
