    On the edge but not quite over ...
    Currently I use MicroSauce Interknot Exploiter, and Mozilla/Firefox as my browsers. I am considering testing a third just so I know a bit about it. In the past I used NetScrape and liked it but eventually moved away from it to IE.

    So, which is your preference; Flack, Opra, or (old) NetScrape, and why?

    I don't think Netscape is available as a standalone browser anymore.. but it might be.

    Opera would be a good choice.

    What's the difference between Opera and Firefox? I tried Opera for awhile, didn't really like it, but recently switched to Firefox to learn it because my wife wanted to switch to it and it seems to be the same as Opera. Yes/no... maybe so?

    What's the "REAL" scoop on Chrome? I heard some "horror" stories for awhile and decided to leave it alone for at least a year like I do MS upgrades.

    Does it take more processing power or memory than Firefox? My wife's laptop is somewhat limited.

    Opera tends to be "heavier" than Firefox, but beyond that.. they are both MSIE alternatives (and good ones at that)

    "Heavier"? More functions, or more laggard? :dunno:

    They're both free... install them both, see which one you like the most.

    Thanks.
