im thinking of using a new browser, currently using IE6. Could anyone put me straight on a stable browser? Im using XP home, theres no real reason its just a boredom thing and i dont usually change anything without asking questions on here first.

Netscape is a reasonable easy alternative to IE.

Netscape was a bit naff for a while but it is improved now.

I've always found Avant Browser to be stable and very good... It sits over IE6 and gives you lots of new features like popup stopper, one window surfing and is very fast indeed... click here

or... on the other hand, Mozilla 1.5b is available and it gives you a whole new browsing experience form the ground up (all new, doesnt use IE6 at all) and it comes with the browser, e-mail client, irc chat proggy and web composer all rolled into 1 package... click here

Avant seems to work with everything from MSN and Yahoo! to all those damn pages that work with IE only...
