Hiya people. I have an old ass PC, pentium 2 400MHz, 256MB SDRam so wat I do to keep it in top notch is use Windows 98SE with 98 Lite Pro, and that means remove Internet Explorer! I'm not a happy bunny at the moment. I use Mozilla Firebird to browse the web, and my system has not crashed yet. Now I've been try verious versions of Trillian Pro (and beta 2), Miranda, Gaim but I got an email from a guy who devloped a plugin for protocol 8 in Mianda said that I would not be able to connect to the MSN network because it """""requires Internet Explorer""""""""". No it's SSL I head on the miranda forums. How the heck would Linux and Unix apps support it. Gee anyone know how to get by this, surly theres a way or an alternative app. I detest Internet Explorer. My windows folder is 264MB at this current moment. I do not wish to make it any bigger buy installing the horrible Internet Explorer. Firebird all the way!
