    Your browser!


    One of the benfits of being owner/admin is seeing which browser you use to surf this site and most of you are still using IE. Do yourself a favor and download Firefox as it is MUCH MUCH better for surfing message boards. It blows away IE by a longshot. DOwnload it and see how faster the pages load going from forum to forum.

    Firefox

    I love firefox... its what I use for all other surfing, but for some reason firefox will not keep the cookie that keeps me logged in here.. I have to relog in every time... and its only this site that does that.

    Do me a favor and clear all your cookies and cache then try it again. I changed something a couple days ago that might of fixed but you still might have an old cookie in there somewhere screwing things up.

    just do this, makes it a lot faster without downloading anything

    1. Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

    network.http.pipelining
    network.http.proxy.pipelining
    network.http.pipelining.maxreq uests

    Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

    2. Alter the entries as follows:

    Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"

    Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining " to "true"

    Set "network.http.pipelining.maxre quests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

    3. Lastly right-click anywhere in the "aboug:config" page and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.del ay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

    4. Restart Firefox

    Why?
    tabbed browsing is the biggest, instead of a different window open for each page you have one open and a lot of small tabs under the adress bar.

    extentions can be added, like tunderbird which is said to be the best email program available. there are thousands of extensions, you want it they have it.

    updates are easy to download.

    faster webpages open, especailly with the little fix i posted up earlier.

    I'm using Netscape and it works much better than IE. No pop-ups. I'm all about that. Works well with this forum too.

    Firefox I command you! No seriously, I love Firefox a lot more than IE, Opera, and even Safari (I'm on an iBook G4).

    The tabbed browsing is def. a plus and the boards load up quicker too.

    While you're at it.. buy an iBook or a Powerbook.. maybe even a G5 Tower.. ok enough of the Mac propoganda.
    "A Native American elder once described his own inner struggles in this manner: Inside of me there are two dogs. One of the dogs is mean and evil. The other dog is good. The mean dog fights the good dog all the time. When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment and replied, The one I feed the most." -George Bernard Shaw

    I use Firefox, but lately it's started crashing when I click backward in a thread to return to the main search results page in a forum, for some reason.
