Re: Dont Use IE

I've only just downloaded it so haven't had a chance to see how it is yet. Time will tell.

Re: Dont Use IE

Is it true that you need IE to allow Windows updates?  Undecided

Re: Dont Use IE

I don't beleive so although actually removing IE is almost impossible due to the way Microsoft tied it into the operating system so all you do is make the browser you want the default browser

No, unless you are on an old version of Windows such as XP, for which there are no more updates anyway.... Wink

Re: Dont Use IE

Not sure if I like the look so far.
Hoping the memory leak has been addressed, though. But, as artmo says, it's early days.
