I dont really want to try firefox as AceExplorer is good for me (autologin, search bar ect - and I dont like the design) - I will try it shortly though!
Thats the reason you don't try Firefox? Every browser ever created has a search bar! and FF has auto-login (I think NS has one too). FF is more secure, and easier to develop websites with as it has a plugin to integrate an FTP client into it.
And what do you mean the design? It's vitually the same as IE. You can change the design of FF with downloadable themes from their website. To change the layout, simply drag and drop.
