yes Stan is correct if you have cookies enabled, from FAQ [color:red] Yes. Cookies are used to track your Username/Password and which posts you have read for your current session. Without accepting cookies some functions won't work properly. <br> </font color=red>you never have to log out or in, many of the activities that are done here cannot be done without cookies unless you have played some tricks in your browser,.. iCab is so crappy in here I don't bother using it, or rather resetting all its fonts etc in order to be able to read things... already did that in Netscape and IE and don't need three browsers in here really, though I am outside now with Opera, seeeing how it works.<br>above is Netscape 4.77, below is Opera 5.0b1 <br><br>..Bloody hell more different fonts and hey none of these cookie powered browsers can remember where they have been? Yes they remember that they have a cookie but they lose posts mid editing and all sorts of stuff. and why oh why can't I do stuff like drag text in these crappy version 5 browsers. Yes I hate Exploder! I find iCab is OK generally, I like Netscape though there are some things I could do with out. All in all it is still the best forum browser. At least I can hack it to perform correctly to MY STANDARDS As IE only supports NEW MS standards THEY imposed upon us. I don't really care if other people think they are better standards. I happen to think they are just [color:orange]SHYTE! </font color=orange> [color:blue] Opera would have to be my second choice in forums.</font color=blue>[color:purple] Except for the fact that Opera despite cookies could not remember this post nor could it find my password.. and that was with cookies</font color=purple> had to finish in Netscape.
I don't really have any problems with iCab here apart from the login thing, which I can apparently do without. iCab accepts cookies and deals with them as expected. Explorer can have some font issues, occasionally not rendering them well in my setup. iCab allows you to default to a pseudo 96 dpi, in essence rendering font size as would be expected on a PC. On the other hand, certain aspects of display are handled oddly in iCab; the background colour in the forums tends to be gray more often than not instead of blue and things don't highlight as expected.<br><br>However, the reason I don't use Explorer generally is that it is prone to unexpected quits on my system. These are non-destructive, so I can simply restart the application, but it is annoying. And yes, I do give it puh-lenty of RAM, 40 megabytes.<br><br>John<br><br>[color:red]PS: I hate to say it, but the argument about IE becoming the standard sounds suspiciously like the crappola that PC users have been slinging at Mac users for years. Gives me the willies.</font color=red><br><br>

Actually I found iCab made things black and unreadable...but then I am not running platinum..<br>IE is actually pretty well fine I run it at 10MB, I have a huge animated splash.. one thing IE is best at is going backward very quickly... is generally faster to browse with than Netscape but not in every aspect... iCab is nifty fast with a small foortprint but still does not support stuff that I generally need and gives me errors... Opera is extraordinarily fast but cumbersome to type with,as is IE. <br> I have Netscape's users folder on another partition and the cache in RAM set at a measly 5 MB I can come in here and pretend I have cookies with it...who needs the others? <br><br>..
