On Sun, 27 Nov 2005 04:12:24 +0000, magnus took a five-minute break from flipping burgers to boot the etch-a-sketch and scribble out:
I've downloaded the latest version of Firefox (saved to my to my
and want to go ahead and execute the install file and play around with
and install the plugins, etc but can I also keep IE 6 as a backup
without suffering any conflicts? Can I just choose which browser I
use at the time and go with it? Knowing Microsoft, it'll detect I'm using something other than it as a browser and output error and compatability messages :/ I have no expendable experimental pig box to play with anymore thanks
lightning strike in the backyard so I do NOT want to screw this one up
have to uninstall and reinstall or reformat.
Nah - just download it and then after unzipping it to a tar -xvf command. You can run it right from the commandline ./firefox
I have mine in /home/kai/downloads/firefox, which I am running on
to test things out. Typically I just use FF 1.0.7 and Opera. I do keep IE
6 around for laughs. (I did have to use it the other day to download
since the MSDN site wouldn't let me do it without - you guessed it - another stupid ActiveX control.)
I've read all of the replies and, other than some sites which won't properly run without using IE as a browser, I guess it'll be ok to install firefox. Mara mentioned the plugins though...I think I'll download one of two at a time and get used to them, etc before downloading all of them.
I'm getting done with IE anyway. I've also heard good things about Opera so I might get that too (after I've gotten used to FF).
if you make sites, get the webdev extension :)
First day it opened I went down there, was doing a few laps and pulled over and the manager comes over to me and says "Oi, mate! No professionals." I said I'm not a professional. He said "Well, you should be with moves like that you could be the best in Britain". I said, "No thanks I'm making shit loads from computers".
