Subject OT: Browsers For Win32 (was CGI limit?)

Just have to leap in with my own 2 cents here :

If anyone on a Win32 desktop hasn't tried out Mozilla yet, get yerself over
there pronto  ( and try out the latest "beta" build -
0.9.6 at the time of writing.  Beta it may be, but it's already far better
(IMHO) than Netscape, and far smaller than IE (9Mb download).  It's a tiny
bit sluggish, but not so's you'd notice on my 500MHz PC.  It has *never*
crashed on me (not since 0.9.3 anyway), renders pages beautifully (much more
faithfully than Netscape), and is very-well featured - check out the cookie
control for instance.

Disclaimer: Our corporate desktop browser is IE 5 (which is nice but gives
me security nightmares).  I've given up on Netscape 4.7x altogether (it just
won't render some pages properly at all), and I haven't tried Netscape 6.x.

OK - I'll shut up now :-)
