Hey... if it works for you, Fulvio, more power to you. We're all so different. I prefer simplicity and continuity. Hence I use "one" default browser... )
I agree on the IE part, but is there any way to have more than one default browser. My default browser is neither IE, Chrome, nor any of the several Firefox versions. It is Seamonkey, mainly for old time sake, and also to see how many moronic websites do not recognize it. As an example, some banks give me a hard time when I login in Seamonkey, considering that I use another computer. Even, old reliable, Secunia PSI has acted up, being "unable" to find a browser, if I try to login in its Forum, with Seamonkey open. Leave it to Secunia, and it will open IE.
I am, especially, galled by this, with my inability to install Widows Updates, automatically, or otherwise.
Secunia PSI tells me that WinXP Pro needs KB2544893. A side from the fact that I don't have Win XP Pro, but rather Home, and I have that KB in my add/remove, but described as v.2. Windows Update tells me that I am up-to-date. At times, I feel like giving up on Seamonkey, but this experience is instructive.
But, I like to take a look at Firefox, and simplicity is important. Two tabs, top, and, only addons which are useful. Most of them are disabled. But, I have no preference for any particular theme, so I like the variety offered by them.
I have read about a fellow in another newsgroup, who has, even, gone to FF 9, and has three versions of FF, with three identical themes. If he deletes or enter a bookmark, he will go to to all three versions, to keep them identical. This is extreme for me, but as said above, everyone has different preferences.
