ok red. Here is my review

I choose Camino over Safari.
Why?

Camino has the Tabbed Browsing feature.
It is also a lot faster as very few websites are safari optimized.


However I found 2 bad points

Camino does not integrate into the OS X dock unless you manually tell it to. (most programs do on install)
It crashes under OS X Jaguar unless you have the 4th update(10.2.4)

Another reason-From E-Week-
News: New IE ActiveX Attack

Are you ready for this? Internet Explorer is being attacked
in yet another way and once again through ActiveX. Some
business users are still holding onto IE in the hopes that
Microsoft IE security patches and Windows XP SP2 (Service
Pack 2 will fix all of these different holes).

I don't think MS can keep up ::)

Not to worry, I'm sure Microsoft will manage to stick around a while longer. :) Uncle sam didn't kill it with it's so called anti-trust law suit, i'm sure that some hackers will also be foiled. Guess that's the price of fame......

Today I downloaded Opera, but I'm having trouble getting the settings right. I imagine my security is blocking the changes. It's going to take me a while to sort out the settings to get started. It keeps telling me I have to update Explorer to access Yahoo, even though it is up to date.
