    That still has a lot of features compared to IE.

    Try Seamonkey.Duriing the install choose "browser only".It may be a standard option or you may have to choose custom installation.If you choose custom uncheck everything.Do not choose the default installation as it installs a bunch of other things included in the Mozilla Suite.

    Thanks, I was thinking Opera might fit the bill.

    Haven't heard of the other ones.

    I'm a fan of Lynx:

    No pop-ups - ever.
    No flash ads - ever.
    No ActiveX exploits - ever.

    of course, it's text only, but it works for me.

    Argh, beat me to it. I'm the poor man's IT for our law firm, and I threaten my coworkers with Lynx whenever they screw up their computers.

    It's actually pretty cool.

    I use Shiira for the Mac, it's like a Super-Safari and very fast.
    Swiftfox or Fasterfox might be worth a look, if there are windows versions.

    Lynx, ha! netcat!

    Seriously though +1 on Lynx for quick use and troubleshooting, you really can't do most of what you'd want to do on the Internet with it anymore though.

    Here's what the forums look like in it:

    I've been using it for a couple of months now. It's way better than IE7!!
