You will have Internet Explorer installed as default so that will be there anyway; use it to install all updates from MS.

Then install Firefox and give it a go - if you like it, you can stay with it; if not, ignore it and use IE.

Whatever internet browser you choose, give Thunderbird a shot for email rather than Outlook Express.

And don't forget Opera - an integrated browser and email client.

Don't beat about the bush, get Opera.

Put all three on your system. They will not hurt your computer. There's always a chance that one or another may be needed at sometime.Plus you may find that you have a favourite out of one of the three, and may want to stick with that as your main browser.

Thats the way I worked it. I tried several browsers before settling on Opera as the one that suits me.

Opera never heard of that one

Is there a website to look at these

Cheers guys

FireFox: click here
Netscape: click here
Opera: click here

I personally prefer FireFox, although you may not.... I suggest what others have suggested, i.e install all of them and test them all out
