Best browser

  carryduff 22:08 13 Jun 2008

Can someone please recomend a no frills no nonsense browser to replace Internet Explorer 6 or 7 I don't need to get the latest news and all the other rubbish which comes with a lot of browsers out there. I just want a fast efficient browser to get online and is also compatable with Outlook Express. Many thanks

Outlook Express is built into IE,so that is out of the question im afraid.

However,try Firefox browser and Thunderbird as your email client.

Plenty of options for a different browser;

Firefox,Flock,Opera etc.

I should have explained better;

You can still use Outlook Express and a different browser with no problems.

I use firefox with the adblock plus add on,this makes quite a difference in speed of pages loading.
However using IE7 with ie7pro is still pretty quick.
