Whatever you do, do not succumb to the heresy of gymbrall and go here. If you do, you might read that insidiously written propoganda, like I did, and be persuaded by evil mind control powers, as I was, to download their worthless, NON-Microsoft, wanna-be Internet browser, I refer to Mozilla Firefox 0.8, under the guise of "trying" it because it's free.

Then, you might find yourself, as I have, frequently suffering from missing time episodes, furiously clicking away in the wee hours using this alternative, one-off, underground, no-name, mongrel, so-called "browser." It offers tabbed browsing, a smaller, more efficient Google toolbar to which you can add multinumerous search engines, a built-in download manager, allows mouse gestures to move forward and back in web pages, and offers features "too numerous to list." (That's the phrase gymbrall repeatedly used to hook me and reel me in.) It's totally cool! It looks a good bit like MSIE, and will even import all your MSIE bookmarks so you can pick up surfing right where you left off. I even made it my default browser last night! (Slaps face while splashing self with cold water)

Well, it couldn't hurt to try it, anyway, right?
