Re: Buttons...

Well, there has been a lot of buttons. But what about creating a community based site like SpreadFireFox. But not use Drupal. Drupal does not meet web standards. That is something we could expose. There also needs to be a better website (no offense, the website looks like one big ad!). These are th...

Just like since the release off XP Service Pack 2, certain web sites have put up pages demanding that you allow the install of their ActiveX scripts to proceed with whatever you were at that site for (I use SpywareGuard & SpywareBlaster to protect me from malware, and with them installed, I don't e...

Ya know.. it would REALLY HELP if you would list the sites you are having issues with. I am so tempted to start deleting "broke, fit it" posts because they serve no point if next to no information is given. I read the posts twice, not a single link to a site that is causing the issue, all I see is f...

Re: Yahoo Companion Compatability

Yea, I heard that excuse before. Still, Avant Browser is based on IE and it works fine in IE and other IE based browsers. I even have the Firefox version. I really like Avant Browser, the tabs, skins, etc, well guess I will try again in another 6 months or a year. Roger Avant is bassed on the IE EN...

It is the code that access the rendering engine that's the difference. The IE code is natorisly bloated and allows for all kinds of crap (toolbars) to be installed. Whereas Avant isn't as bloated and has fewer instances of crap (toolbars) that can be installed. All that extra stuff slows downs the c...

Your both right and wrong.. though you are more wrong than right. Gecko isn't the only option.. it is only getting so much press because it is for windows and people want it to be the IE replacement.. the developers are not the people pushing for that. But anyway.. gecko isn't the only standards com...

AOL's commercials are horrible as always, but helps reveal the truth that computer problems usually come from user error.. Anyway, Netzero has an awesome commercial that is exactly the same as one of the AOL ones but they say they are leaving to Netzero for only $9.95 a month. It's pure genious. BT...
