Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Firefox vs Opera web browsers

I have been using Firefox rather a bit lately. Slowly drifting away from my past love Opera. It's been for two reasons I have been spending more time with it. It has blogging extensions and pretty good tab/session management. Also, the amount of truly useful extensions is amazing. I dreaded installing extension in previous versions of Firefox. Crashes and clashes would erupt. Re-install, inevitable. But lately these things have been very stable and I have found the power and convenience afforded by Firefox is now superior to Opera. All I'm missing is the "notes" function and I am close to done.

The ability to do most of the things I using Opera for, and adding a slew of other tricks, and Firefox looks better and better. Add to it the power to run from my flash drive and carry it wioth me? Gawdam! that's sweet.

Even with last week's release of Opera 9 they are behind the development curve. The 'widget' offerings are weak and will need time to develope into stronger utilities.
