Hello, did you read my post
"It doesn't store all your URLs & search engine queries & cookies in multiple sytem locked and hidden DAT files that do not clear whan you instruct the broweser to remove history etc.."
I'm not taking about cookies and history etc i'm taking about the index.dat files that record all the same information permanently and cannot be deleted or edited without extra ordinary measures.
Personnaly I don't like firefox, I don't like the way it looks, and I find it fairly unstable. Also alot of the extensions are buggy and incompatible with each other.
I used deepnet explorer for along time, its tabbed browsing is much better than firefox's and it has builting anti phishing etc, none the less I found it conciderably less secure then firefox based purely on experiance.
I can't comment on IE7 because i've never used it, personally I try to avoid beta soft, saves headaches. i'll reevaluate my position when IE7 is gold and has been at the mercy of hackers for a few months.
Outlook is a problem too, I really like the program but once again microshaft have hidden files containg every email you've ever sent or received AND all attachments.. bloatware and massive privacy risk.
I like alot of micro$ofts software I just don't like what they do with it, activation for example.
