    Is there anyway to replace that moving "window flag" in the upper right corner of my browser? It would be nice to see something new once in awhile.. Without downloading entire add-on programs....

    Well I know it can be done as I did at one point in time. I had a third party software that did it but I also remember seeing another way to do it with out third party software and now I can't find it. Well I was finally able to find what I was lookin for.

    info on how to change the IE flag

    Great, thanks I'm looking forward to a change of scenery....
    I do like how you can interchange themes with Mozila and have various animated icons... YOU would think that MS will come out with IE 7 with the next OS and have these various options? Maybe...

    don't think so...MSN Explorer 8 has what you want but it will cost you money.

    Read the readme.txt in the zip posted by 2zig. The restore files are also included. You can remove the throbber in Windows Explorer, absolutely of no use there, with it, too. I turned it off in Explorer using throboff and changed it in Internet Explorer using Edensoft MyLogo , a smalll program with a nice extra feature. If I want to go to xp-erience.org I simply doubleclick the throbber. (Kind of second homepage you can configure)
     
  9. How do I save that animated flag so that i can save it as a mouse waiting cursor?

    Mbunny you must dream about that mozilla at night. How is that browser working for you anyway.. Its gotten excellent reviews everywhere I've looked..

    Anybody have a link to various avatars that could be used instead of the waving IE flag..

    I was converted =P

    I to was once a IE person... but then i learnt about the ways of the Mozilla.

    Mozilla is excellent... Nothing matches it in my opinion (heh... slightly biased hehe)

    ^ - A very useful toolbar for you to add to Mozilla.

    Lets you choose to disable popups and javascript et al on the bar rather than going into preferences =)

    ummm... I like Mozilla cause it does the stuff the right way. No good getting used to a bad habit.

    Hey hippy... my spinny round circle with lights owns the IE Flag hehehe
