I just discovered a great open souce free we browser called K-Meleon. It is simple and fast loading and it works much better than Internet Explorer.
Check it out.
you can download it at "kmeleonbrowser dot org"
K-Meleon is an open-source web browser for Microsoft Windows. Based on the same Gecko layout engine as Mozilla Firefox and SeaMonkey, K-Meleon's design goal is to provide a fast and reliable web browser while providing a highly customizable interface and using system resources efficiently. It is released under the GNU General Public License.
I'm always on the lookout for capable browsers. This one looks better than most. It uses about 10 percent of the memory that Firefox does and has most of the important features. No addons or extensions but that might not be a bad thing given the data those things suck up.
So thanks for that.
You are welcome. I discovered this browser while restoring an old Dell laptop running Microsoft XP.
I noticed the difference in memory usage since my old laptop does not have a lot of memory.
I compared this browser to firefox while both running a DVD in the background. When the Firefox is running, the music playing would skip...due to the cache not keeping up. While ruuning K-meleon, the songs are playing much better...

I am not sure if one has anything to do with the other, but I recently updated my browser to IE 9 and now I can't edit my hubs. When I click edit, it just pages up to the top of the hub.I already contacted HP about this, but was wondering if anyone had any insight as to why this would be...

For the last several days if I wish to share a good hub from a HP author with my followers, it won't do it for some reason. Is anyone else having this problem?

I use FF. Had it a while and only began using it daily after a still-not-removed virus attached itself to IE.I was thinking of alternatives - Google Chrome, Opera. Anyone use browsers other than IE or FF? Likes, dislikes?
