For those with button fobia. With a pair of these underneath your desk you don't even need a mouse! Handy, or is that the wrong word here...

9? Probably 8, maybe 7.5, or even earlier.

Not positive it would be a matter of being more or less civilized, but different from OS X, for sure!

Footy, more like!

Not sure I would do much better with that. But is it real?

What Ian said. Anybody who tossed me into TopStyle has his head screwed on right. Listen to him. ;-)

I use FireFox too but Opera does more and does it more easily for me.

I guess everyone has their favorite features, but the ones I find myself trying to use in other browsers are

F2, type the url, hit Enter to go to a site
Right mousebutton click and hold, left click to go back (reverse that to go forward)

And its implementation of RSS, while probably not the match for a dedicated reader, is all I need and more useful than FireFox.

Hiya Terrie,

We helped a friend move to Atlanta, then went to Mobile to visit my Mom and spent a few days with her at a beach cabin near Gulf Shores, where I'm *very* happy not to be now. Luckily, Mom's place is west of downtown Mobile; high ground, noplace near the water, so other than a downed tree and fence, she's ok.

Oh, shoot, I missed it!

I love Opera for many reasons, one of which is its ability to handle my 10,000 bookmarks. <g>

Oh, well, maybe they'll be giving it away again in another 10 years ...
