I don't think you caught what was said regarding the text versus icon issue on the toolbar. You can have just text by going through the options (as was explained in the previous posts) so that should not be a reason for not installing Firefox. And as far as blaming Bill Gates (we all love to dump on Billy Boy, don't we... LOL), that's really not the entire picture. Netscape corporation have a great deal to do with their own downfall. I recommend to you the book Netscape Time by Jim Clark.
Quote: The story of Netscape alone is thrilling enough, but Clark also gives tremendous insight into the real way American business operates nowadays--the speed, the risks, and the hatred for rivals (lots of hatred, mostly for Microsoft and Bill Gates.) Most of the book covers the founding of Netscape Communications, but there's an epilogue, too, discussing the merger of Netscape with America Online, the ongoing battle with Microsoft, and, most important, the impact the Web has had on everyday life. Clark makes a sound argument that Netscape had a lot to do with that. Oh, and did you know it made him rich? --Lou Schuler
