    Hi, I have stuck to IE8 as I had no problems with it. In the last week both my desktop and my notebook and SWMBO's laptop slowed to a crawl and I meaN CRRAAAAAWWWWWL. Today got a call from a friend who's lappie is suddenly the same. So bit the bullet and installed Firefox, back up to speed!!! What the hell is MS playing at? :Blush:

    Some people experienced FF problems with 3.5 but 3.5.5 is now as stable as ever. IMO FF Beats every other browser hands down. ::bigsmile:

    Bloatware and multiple patches.

    I think they have lost the plot about what an internet user really wants when browsing the net.

    SPEED.
