    I was one of them. On Friday the 17th I clicked download and followed it with an install. Loads up web pages on my old Compaq box real quick. :)

    Way to go, Firefox/Mozilla!!!

    I tried IE a couple of days ago, Windows update wouldn't update unless I d/l'd IEo_O Well, I already had it, so I used it, are they happy now!!

    It seemed sooo incredibly ssllooooww? I thought how could I have stood that? But I didn't know better?!

    There is a lot I still don't know about FireFox, like why don't I read the directions:(, but, it is such a breezy thing compared to plodding old IE. Still, miss alll the easy animation-- when I want, but I don't waste half as much time as I did waiting for IE to load a page!! (dial-up,in case you were wondering)

    So, Cheers to Mozilla and all who work to make our puter life easier!! Thanks!! :)
