Safari is Mac only, but Opera is available on Win32.
Http://www.opera.com

Unless you're running a mac, you can't use Safari. Apart from Abby, cause she's a PearPC g33k.
And if you're hardcore enough, give Lynx (http://lynx.browser.org/) a try.

Sure, you can get the binary for the Win32 version of Lynx from here (http://www.fredlwm.hpg.ig.com.br/cygwin/lynx/download/MinGW/lynx.7z).

EDIT: File Type: Unknown
Description: Windows does not recognize this file type.

The following Web sites have a comprehensive list of file extensions. You might be able to find information about this file type there:

* CKNOW.COM

o_O Your Windows is seriously WEIRD. And I think Avant is built around the IE core anyway, so it's basically the same as IE except it adds some features.

You gotta run Lynx-Borland.exe to get it to run ^_^

Were do I get it..and wat is it?...Another thing...is lynx compatiable with windows XP.

When you install Lynx, it creates two exes.
Lynx.exe and Lynx-Borland.exe.
And yes, it's fully compatible with Windows XP

When I downloaded it only one thing came up. Lynzx.7z....Did I do something wrong?

aaaaaa
September 24th, 2004, 02:01 PM
Ohh, you haven't unzipped it?
You just need 7-zip (http://www.7-zip.org/) to extract it.
Enjoy ^_^

Thunderbird is not a browser. It's a email client like Outlook. To download it, go here:

1.0 PR release. Only try the Nightly Builds if you are going for bugs, too, like I check all the time. ^_~; PR is for you, but will have a few bugs here and there.

They're unstable releases. So they could have little glitches, or they could totally crash your computer.

Yes, and also I use outlook and sometimes thunderbird for mail

but I cannot figure out how to send the mail, it keeps failing. X_X

In Thunderbird you have to configure the SMTP settings under Account Options. o_o Your ISP should you the required info or something. @_@ I just swiped it from my parents' Outlook, lol.

That sounds odd, it's just like what happens when I use www.pcomm.info

Just try another layout and see if it helps.
