I get tons of internet explorers pop up for no reason on my start bar. You cant click on them and they are not advertisments; they just appear. Only thing I can do is exit them. Does anyone know what the deal is here?
Hold up there partner, this statement is false. You may be all hyped up on IE (most insecure browser around), but don't bash Mozilla (very secure)!
Sorry man, just had to take issue with your statement.
But you got to admit that Mozilla is really a worse version of Netscape. (at first I wanted to say copy, but then again, I don't know, may be Mozilla was the first...).
Sorry again, I didn't want to offend anybody.
P.S.: =)BigAfflec doesn't count since he a madman and a jerk.
Valmian, not that I am siding with anyone, but I would consider something before you state crap vs non-crap. I am not saying one is better than the other, but if you notice IE and Netscape are all based of the Mozilla Source code.
Keep in mind, however, that IE uses up just as much. But because MS integerated IE so deeply into their OS, it doesn't appear to take up that much (actually, IE doesn't even show up on my Win2k's task list... it's just lumped into the OS heap).
Microsoft makes pop-up windows from third-parties (most pop-up ads are in this format) get whacked by default. After all, they take up system resources, can trap users in painful loops if they go to the wrong site, and cause IE to seem to freeze as a new window is opened in the background.
The worse IE pop up is the one that take over the entire screen. How to turn that off? I had to hit and find the internet explorer task and shut it down. Doing this on Windows 9x, make your machine unstable. Better to download Mozilla and using it to do your web surfing.
If IE runs so smoothly whats the problem? I still dont think you turned off active scripting.
This is way better than IE for the parnoid and less annoying too.
It is based on Mozilla code. (You got to love this open source code sharing).
Here are the features:
1) Cookies are deleted on shutdown
3) mail and news clients allow you to remove HTML and view it as plain
Why do you say IE uses up just as much System Resources? I'm constantly monitoring due to the fact that I'm using a computer with about as much memory as my burnt bong smoking mind. The fact is Mozilla slowed my computer down and IE doesnt. I can have IE running days on end. With Mozilla I'm restarting every two hours.
I'm going to say this once. Internet explorer and messengers are the only programs I use on my computer; they are the only programs I need. If Mozilla was so great it should be able to run on both new and old machines; like IE!
