    I can't believe you didn't find that. I asked Opera to marry me when I found out I could do that. The tabs were sweet... but the aliases took me over the top in terms of switching.

    Well you could use Opera now. There are several versions of Opera for Linux.

    edit: Also, I doubt that will happen, because MyIE2 FEEDS off of IE. Hence the name. It grabs your favorites, uses the same styles, etc.

    MyIE2 looks like Internet Explorer on 'roids; it should be breaking some drug law or something. MyIE2 relies on Internet Explorer at its core; in fact, MyIE2 is just a new GUI over the same old insecure, standards-breaking IE rendering engine and Web protocols layer. Plus, since it's built on Internet Explorer and Windows technology, no Linux version is possible anytime soon.

    I pledge my allegiance to Mozilla. I use Mozilla on both Windows XP and Debian GNU/Linux, and I've had no need for Internet Explorer ever since having made the switch. Mozilla and its relative Firebird are free as in price, open source, actively developed by the community, Web-standards compliant, and relatively more secure.

    Frankly, I can't see any reason why anyone would stick with Internet Explorer or one of its derivatives when better alternatives are available.

    I tried mozilla/firebird for a week and didn't like it. Mainly just 'cause I like the interface more.

    Mozilla blows. Firebird blows. The only reason I am using MyIE2 is because IE doesn't have tabs and I can't use Opera at work because it keeps asking me for the damn firewall username/password. Firebird has the same problem.

    BTW, does anyone know how to edit the right-click menu? I want to be able to open a link in a new page.

    You mean when you right click on a link? Mine has the option of a new window, it opens in a new tab tho. Did you want to open in an actual new window?

    well... it threw me for a loop because it's the same menu as in IE and I was expecting the same functionality, so I didn't try it.

    Mozilla's user interface is themable and highly customizable, using some XML-based shell language. If the UI isn't to your tastes, I've heard that this XML language is not much more difficult than HTML.

    I like Netscape. It's better than mozilla in winxp. And not only that it's also included Mail Client. Netscape provide imap email access. That is the reason I use Netscape.

    PS: I still don't find any function or plugin that netscape don't provide.
