    No major problems with it, but I'd download Firefox 3.5 instead.

    I've been using it for several weeks with no issues to report.

    How about XP, SP3?

    I've been hanging on with SP2 and IE 7.0 on the old PC, although do have Firefox on the laptop and the new PC.

    Like Firefox, but their very rudimentary 'Bookmark' tool sucks big time.

    Like the others I prefer Firefox because it is still faster then IE. I had a few customers that have experienced problems after installing IE 8 that disappeared when they uninstalled it and went back to IE 7 ... they were all older (3 - 5 years) computers.




    Have you been keeping your system update with the latest patches and critical updates? If so then you have almost everything already because sp3 is made up of a collection of previously available updates and patches along with some minor enhancements and they are designed to assist those that manage large numbers of computers on business networks.

    You may want to Google it...I canceled the download after reading the problems. Never download something new...wait for the bugs to get out of it.
