I think that four people use SeaMonkey and I'm one of them. ;)

But i think chrome is better,or to be more clear any thing google programs is the best like picasa,gmail,gtalk,google earth,their new os chromium ,and so on............
I would really have to disagree with that. I use both Gmail and GMX and I prefer the latter but I don't use the web based part of either one, I retrieve my mail with Outlook Express. I do prefer the web access in GMX though. It's simpler and easier to navigate. The only Google offering I use regularly is the search and that's just because I always have and I can always find what I'm looking for. The Google OS is a joke that is most likely doomed to failure or at best to be a niche application with limited adoption.

DCH I got a GMX account...I'm getting reminders regularly from them asking me if I forgot about...them. And the answer would definitely be, each time they mail me: YES :D (and I see you're using Outlook Express, best email client I suppose ;D )

I never get anything from GMX like that. The only things I get from them are notices of new features which are added on a regular basis.

Actually, yes, Outlook Express is the best email client I have ever used. It's simple and does everything I need to do with an email program. Thunderbird is a nightmare and impossible to get to work correctly. The only other client I like is Windows Mail in Vista or Live Mail for XP which works pretty much the same as OE.

Nothing wrong with GMX I've had an email account with them for ages and never had a problem.
It keeps getting better constantly.  :)

there's been a few times where I couldn't even access my account (on the web interface), had to insist, try later etc...other times when it only run in Internet explorer. Now to the desktop client side: GMX works with IMAP, but it won't allow you to configure "special IMAP" folders the way Gmail does...it's a million miles behind Gmail, in every way. The login screen offers https as an option (like hotmail) ::) The settings are poor etc...

Well, I've never even used IMAP because I've never seen a reason to and I don't sort or even keep mail. I read it and delete it for the most part. Only a few get saved. I turn off the spam filtering in GMX and let Spamfighter take care of that in OE. I very rarely use the web interface and don't want mail being trapped there that may not actually be spam. I want to be able to see it all the day it comes in. I've never had a single problem with GMX in the way I use it but my Gmail account that I use for junk mail has gone down a few times. I don't need all the options and bells and whistles that Gmail might have, I just want a simple email operation. GMX also has never been accused of spying on you like Google does.

If I'm the "perfect prey" how come they have never gotten me?
What I am is an example of how you don't need to do all the things recommended by "experts" and still remain clean.

Dch,
Don't feel bad, you aren't alone. There are many that don't go overboard and still remain "safe".

Well according to the graph it isn't so much firefox growing more IE shrinking, which means other browsers are taking up the shrinkage.

So another statistic being able to be manipulated as firefox is only just beginning to get back to where it was percentage wise in July 2009 and still not as high as it was in following 6 months.

Perhaps that graph title should be IE to make history by dropping off top browser spot in Europe as it isn't so much firefox winning it but IE losing it.
