    Hi all,

    having got a bit fed up with Firefox reecntly (pages not loading correctly - imaged missing - sites not compatible) I thought I'd see if there was a third party program for allowing tabbed browsing in IE6.

    Well, it seems that IE7 Beta is out and testing, which has tabbed browsing and you can import your bookmarks from the "bookmarks.html" file that Firefox creates.

    Go here if you want to give it a go - I know that it is MS, but at least websites will work properly with it :(

    If anyone can shed light on why my Firefox might have gone doolally - please let me know as I'd prefer to use it to support the developers.

    TTFN

    I've got a bet with a buddy about how many Security Updates will be released for IE7 in the next 6 months. I say 5...... :(

    Surely the bigger question will be how many security updates IE7 needs rather than how many actually get released. :)

    lol theyve just made it worse.

    address bar right at the very top :confused:
    then tabs? :confused:
    then file/edit etc and home etc :confused:

    ridiculous.

    only good thing is an "empty tab" always there ready to be opened without pressing ctrl T
