You can hack into browser, I wasn't saying Firefox has total immunity to any dilemmas, but it is 10x better than IE.

Well, seeing as how none of those features are useful I will not be downloading it and will be sticking to 1.0.5.

Until a version (1.5) comes out with more features.

It's one thing to just say you prefer msn explorer or IE, that's fine, but to say it has flaws? I don't think so.
It has flaws because it does Firefox has had more Critical Flaws since SP2 than Internet Explorer :P Short of the Tabs, which you can do with MSN Toolbar, Internet Explorer does everything better than Firefox, with no problems because updating it automatic and happens behind your back, you do nothing when updating Internet Explorer. And it renders much better than Firefox :P

MSN Explorer is the Dog's Balls! And you only gets loads of Popups and 'stuff' because you haven't got SP2 Because you have illegal XP
