    Hi Guys,

    This one browser looks/feels really good so far. Proclaims really good security as well. But I think it is built on IE6.

    Anyone tried this one, or has some input.

    It has no inhertent download manager,

    But that is just a regedit anyways for IE to increase MaxDownloads.

    It uses MSN search, but I think that could be changed with another regedit so that it defaults to google.

    Nuh. The way I see it Firefox is going to be at the top for quite a while without any real competition aside from itself.

    I've uploaded a copy. I'm not so sure the actual thread can be restored easily though.

    It dosent look that great. It's pretty much another IE, and Firefox is the best, with good style, extensions, search engines, download manager, and much more. I can't understand people who say anything else is better or as good. Firefox is number 1!!

    you're not going to kill off firefox with an IE Wrapper...

    <rant>
    I freaking wish people would stop making "yet another IE Wrapper" and calling it a browser and then having the gall to claim it'll beat firefox, mozilla, opera, whatever.
    </rant>

    Lord of LA,

    It is not a rant, but actual fact what you said. Just because it has window dressings on it, it is stil lIE, and therefore it is never gonna kill off FireFox.
