Today I received notification from Microsoft advising I can download browsers other that IE. While i would like to try one of them e.g.Firefox, I would not like to lose IE8 until I was sure so could I download firefox but use it as an optional browser?
Listen to buteman, that is the way to go. If you download the "Update" from MS you cannot uninstall it. Several members have complained, this is all part of the EU Beurocracy to make MS toe the line and is of no help whatsoever.
Hi Crossbow7, I agree but unless you are computer savvy, and stop it loading in msconfig (or start Up)you are stuck with it in the system tray. In my opinion better not to install it, all browsers are available on the web with no extra programs installed.
Don't ask why but I have 4 different browsers on my system without any problems at all. In my case Firefox is the default browser. When you download Firefox make sure to tell it not to be the default browser and you'll keep IE8 as your default. You can easily change between the defaults if required.
