    I have always used Internet Explorer and have just dealt with all of its little 'quirks' but I can't take it anymore! I can't even open capsules now or delete any to work on a hub.

    So how do I change to something different? And what should I change it to?

    Fairly computer illiterate here so simple detailed instructions would be lovely if anyone can help!! smile

      Download and install google chrome (very convenient) or mozilla firefox...I used i.e. regularly until a year ago...

    Google 'firefox' or 'opera' or 'google chrome'. Pick the most appropriate website (you're looking for the download), then do just that.

    They'll all download happily, doing the work for you. Nothing difficult, you should find it a breeze smile

    You can do small people, you can manage a little old download y'all tongue

    I was finding that Explorer wasn't interfacing with many websites I wanted to join or work with.  Without going into details, I was getting frustrated so I switched to Firefox and have not looked back.

    It was easy and they import your bookmarks. I love all the add-ons and extensions there.

    Make the jump, it's easy.

    Just FYI, I used Explorer for over 12 years and just switched to Forefox about a months ago, I wish I did it years ago.  I thought it would be difficult and it was pleasantly easy.

    Congratulations on your decision to migrate to open system browsers instead of the proprietary IE.  Firefox and Chrome are both popular but also take a look at RockMelt if you are a heavy Facebook user.

    IE is not customizable, though Firefox is much friendlier & easy to use. check out its feature & tips to tweak it at http://hubpages.com/hub/Top-Internet-Browser
    or click to download the latest Firefox

    AFAIK, Google Chrome is the easiest browser to install. just search "google chrome" on google. just click the first result. The installation is automated. All you have to do is wait. After the installation, you can open google chrome on the start menu.

    if(Windows == "true") { (die("please trade me in for a Mac"); }
    elseif(iMac =="true")

    echo "Download Opera 11 or Firefox 3.6";
    echo "Hoorah!";

    Internet explorer =  Crap

    Firefox  =   Tons of features, slightly slower than chrome

    Chrome   =   Lightning fast, but lacks the features firefox  has got

    you can try firefox and google chrome.
    on your internet explorer address bar, go to google.com,
    in the search box, type firefox download and click search
    you can find the download link on the first search engine result...
    happy browsing
