Firefox !Removed! rocks!

Just now and then on some sites the dynamic drop down menus dont work,


Vehicle Make - Select Toyota from drop down

Vehicle Model - This is still empty

Most of them seem to be okay though.

If you are useing msn because you don't like outlook express... try getting Thunderbird for your e-mails and set it up to check your msn message account?

firefox is a different browser to IE, IE is a very insecure browser and has a lot of security risks associated with it, other browsers such as firefox (www.mozilla.org) and opera (www.opera.com) tend to be a lot more secure, i.e. ur less likely to get stuff that will mess up ur PC. Other browsers also tend to be a lot more respectful of web standards but thats a different issue. Ive used both opera IE and firefox and i would say imo i think opera is the best but have a try at firefox and opera see which one is best for you.
