Those notes/suggestions are correct Paradox. I've used them many times so I know that that's true.
Also, in Firefox, will it get faster if you go beyond 100? I had it at 500 once, I didn't really notice a significant difference because at the time I was using the 500 packet thign I was desperate for speed because I was using Dial Up. But since getting high speed DSL, I lowered it to 100. Hmmm I think when I get home I'll change it to 500 and see if it changes it.
Also, another cool thing about Mozilla is Tabbed Browsing. Which basically allows "tabs" in the Browser window. Instead of your conventional open a new window to view a new page. It makes it VERY VERY VERY useful when you're multitasking. Trust me. I was listening to music, had conversations up, had CF up, and Mozilla and was Browsing about 5 sites at one time. If I didn't have tabbed browsing my desktop would be a mess!
So just take everyone's advice, switch to Mozilla Firefox and experience something new besides the "default" browser!
