Has anyone used Netcaptor? If so, thoughts?

From what I have read, you have to put up with banner ads,or pay them money, and since Mozilla and My IE2 are free, why bother?

Is there any way you can get Internet Explorer to open a link on a page whilst its loading. My one seems intent on not allowing me to click on or open links in new windows until its finished loading the page.

as you can see im impatient - SO I WANT AN ANSWER QUICK - got it.... :D

Do you have a popup or ad blocker working? I'll have to check what my wife was running. It's been a while. Her's did the same and we attributed it to the ad/popup blocker.

I guess it would be best to limit activex controls as I have IE set to defaults. I was using MyIE2 and picked this up without any permission or prompts. It kept mutiplying (see taskmanager) installing spyware multiple times. There was nothing my Antivirus could do. It took an hour or more to rid my PC of the trojan. I inspected the trojan properties and sure enough, it was activeX

Awhile ago I went from the first tabbed browser (netcaptor) to MyIE2 which is my current favorite. I'm curious why others, who've tried MyIE but now use another alternative browser (avant, slim, etc), prefer the other browser over MyIE?

Temporary Internet Files

Ok... somehow the option to have these temp files removed when closing IE has vanished. I no longer have that option and no longer does it delete the files. I can do this manually... and have norton do it too.. but I'm lazy. Any reg fixes or whatever to fix this ?

ok well I use Avant Browser and when I uninstall it to install the new version I can't delete the file in the folder called iexplore.exe so I figured since it shares the same name as ie I would change the name and delete....well this file won't go away and I had to move it to my desktop so that I could install the new version of avant. so now I have a file on my desktop that won't go away. I've tried renaming it, restarting everything so that if it's running which it's not it will quit. Well I've tried everything and it won't go away...help!

MyIe is the best .. It has a lot more features, works great with my download manger, and the mouse gestures work like a charm. I have it set where all the is at the top is the url bar and search bar. The rest of the actions are done with the mouse :) The gecko engine in it is kinda cool also ..

I have a question though. You know when you double click on the tab bar it brings up another tab ? How do you get the tab to show your home page when it opens ?? it shows a blank screen as it is..

I hate Gecko.
oh, and also, Avant seems a lot more smooth to me. Easier to get it to do what you want. But it's probably just a matter of personal preference in the end.

Avant Browser Plus?
here is the link to the publishers
http://istreamcast.com/avantplus/home.html
if anyone knows what the dif is please let me know
I installed the google browser from this site .. It was full of spyware, When you first install it it makes you register with gamebrowser.com. My antivirus went nuts with the program file. It installed more than just the browser - It slowed my connection down, I tried to uninstall it and it killed my connection. After that I ran ad-aware and it found 49 references to this one browser alone. I deleted all the files it showed including the program file. After this I ran my antivirus on a demand scan, it found nothing, apperaently ad aware found it. I then rebooted the pc and did the adaware again it found 25 more things referenced with the google browser I installed.

Finally, I tried to get on line and it would'nt do anything, it was dead. So I ran hijackthis and found 10 references to this google browser I installed, I deleted them all then tried to get on line again. It worked this time - I recomend anyone to not install any of the browsers off that website.

I stick to IE. I've tried more than 4 alternative browsers and each one had some bugs. But among alternative browsers, -IMHO- Avant is the best.

i've been using avant for over a year now, only had a few problems which were fixed quickly with patches - tried most mozilla based browsers, it was just little things that turned me off, so i stick with my ie shell.

Spybot & Avast AV say they work with IE. How can you use other browsers like Avant?

Won't Spybot and Avast anti-virus fail to block spyware and virii?
Thank you. :confused:
