FireFox 2 is out !!!!!!!!!

And for those of us that are smart enough to NOT use IE ....Mozilla gives your FF2.

Features include:

W3C/CSS 1.0/2.0 compliant browser

smaller memory footprint

built in spell checker (I love this feature BTW)

cached back button pages for faster surfing

NO ACTIVE X.........read more secure, less spy ware.

And a bunch of other stuff.






Why you should use it instead of IE7....

IE7 is still not fully compliant with W3C standards or fully CSS compliant. Sure png's are sort of supported now.....its a horrible hack. Alpha filters(transparency) still don't work right.

Its still doesn't fully or correctly support CSS standards which are almost 8 years old now.

It still uses Active X.........might as well invite spy ware infections to pwn your box.

I cant see one reason why anyone would want to use sub par software, that doesn't render web pages correctly and actually increases your chances of your computer getting infected.
