 Hi  All
 
 This  is  a  totally  unrelated  question  really.  No  connection  with  aquaria  though  there  is  a  certain  if  nebulous  connection  with  the  IAH  site.
 
 How  do  I  get  Mozilla  or  else  Firefox  to    open  new  windows  next  to  the  currently  acitve  one.?
 
 I  am  more  familiar  with  Opera  and  that  was  a  breeze.  Still  prefer  Opera  but  here  at  the  webcafe  that  I  frequent  Mozilla  or  Firefox  is  THE  flavour.
 
 Sorry  if  the  question  is  out  of  place  but  the  other  forum  that  i  participate  in  has  not  even  heard  of  Firefox  (just  kidding).

 Hello  Deepesh,
 
 I  have  been  using  Firefox  for  almost  a  year  and  a  half  now  and  have  never  had  problems  in  opening  links  in  a  new  window  or  new  tab.  (IAH  to  be  specific)  Can  you  be  more  specific  with  your  question?

 Not  sure  if  I  have  understood  your  question  correctly.
 If  you  press  CTRL  and  click  any  link  (  Say  google  search  results)  ,  it  opens  a  new  Tab  within  the  same  window.
 Alternatively,  if  you  press  Shift  and  click  any  link  it  will  open  in  an  entirely  new  window.
 
 Does  tha  answer  your  question  ?
 
 Thanks

 Do  you  mean,  open  in  a  new  tab  ?  Ctrl  T  or  right  click  &  select  open  in  new  tab.

 Waaay  faster  on  an  800  Mhz  system  with  256  MB  RAM...  not  much  faster  on  2  Ghz  with  1  gig  of  RAM  Wink
 I  don't  use  any  extensions.
 If  I  did,  Firefox  Adblock>>>>>>>>  Opera  Adblock
 Mouse  gestures  are  for  wimps.
 Opera  has  issues  with  Java  and  rendering  pages  correctly.
 
 And  why  did  they  make  Opera  free??  oh  yeah,  'cos  it  sucks

 Hi  All
 
 Have  I  started  a  browser  flame  war  or  something?
 
 The  reason  I  like  Opera  is  that  on  a  slower  system  it  is  the  fastest  browser  I  have  seen.  Faster  than  Firefox.  And  native  Opera  is  very  very  customisable  which  allows  you  to  get  very  very  comfortable  and  used  to.
 
 On  the  other  hand  while  I  cant  comment  about  Java  I  do  know  for  sure  that  Opera  *does*  have  issues  with  rendreing  pages.  For  example  it  leaves  out  formatting  such  as  background  color  for  buttons  used  in  lists.
 Or  it  sometime  does  not  change  the  font  size  to  default  afer  a  section  with  smaller  or  larger  font  size.  Quite  unexpected  for  a  browser  often  touted  as  the  best.
 
 Firefox  on  the  other  hand  seems  to  render  pages  consistently  and  perhaps  the  way  the  style  sheets  standard  meant  them  to  be  displayed.  
 
 Yet................I  like  Opera  the  most.  I  surf  from  a  friends  connection  or  from  a  cyber  cafe.  So  the  systems  I  use  are  far  closer  to  the  800MHz  +  256Mb  than  the  2gig  +  1  gig.  On  these  systems  Opera  does  make  a  difference.  Add  to  that  the  customisation  that  Opera  adds  natively,  meaning  without  plug-ins.  Firefox  does  allow  more  customization  but  only  through  plugins.  Also  Operas  toolbars  and  styles  appear  much  neater  and  slicker  than  others  and  it  provides  more  screen  space  than  other  browsers.  And  you  dont  have  to  hunt  the  net  for  some  pretty  neat  functions  such  as................
 
 When  you  open  a  new  page  in  the  same  window  where  does  a  broser  open  it?  At  the  end  of  the  line  of  tabs  (called  tabbar?<smiling>)  Well  in  Opera  you  have  an  option  that  allows  you  to  open  the  new  tab  (as  in  open  link  in  a  new  tab)  right  next  to  the  one  you  are  using.  I  am  lazy  enough  to  find  that  neat.  Dont  have  move  your  mouse  too  much  and  all  daughter  tabs  are  in  a  sequence,  all  lined  up  to  the  right  of  the  other  tab.  I  was  looking  for  how  to  do  the  same  with  Firefox.  Did  I  clear  the  air  on  this?
 
 Another  big  plus  for  me  since  I  download  a  lot  from  the  net  is  that  Opera  shows  transfers  so  neatly  in  an  independent  tab  if  you  want  it  to.  And  Notes  in  Opera  is  rally  convenient  when  you  are  copying  parts  of  a  page  such  as  when  hunting  on  info  for  *discus*  or  *planted  aquaria*
 
 These  links  form  a  google  [http://ww.google.com]  search

 http://developedtraffic.com/2005/06/12/opera-versus-firefox-debate/
 I  think  point  out  that  different  browsers  for  different  folks  is  the  rule.  However  firefox  appears  to  be  more  popular.

 http://www.osnews.com/story.php?news_id=7562&page=2
 
 wow!!  is  opera  really  so  good  that  firefox  makes  extensions  for  its  features?
 
 and  this  is  the  zen  page.  the  one  that  tries  to  sum  it  up.  kind  of  tells  you  that  opera  is  better  and  firefox  might  become  better.
 http://www.osnews.com/story.php?news_id=7562&page=3
 
 My  experience  with  Firefox  is  limited  to  one  version  only  but  I  have  been  told  that  you  have  to  download  all  extensions  if  you  upgrade.  Is  that  true?

 Hi  Retro
 
 Why  IE    on  systems  accessible  to  the  public?
 
 BTW  the  webcafe  that  I  use  has  stopped  using  IE  as  the  default  browser.  I  think  one  cannot  remove  IE  form  windows  no?  But  they  use  Firefox  on  some  systems  and  Opera  on  others.  And  Mozilla  on  very  few.

 Most  websites  are  designed  with  IE  in  mind.  If  I  were  paying  by  the  hour  to  surf  the  net,  I  would  be  rather  pissed  if  I  the  browser  froze  on  me  or  did  not  display  pages  properly.  IE  is  also  what  most  casual  users  would  be  familiar  with.  Hence  IE  for  public  terminals.

 OK  I  get  it.
 
 Do  websites  appear  better  on  IE  because  they  are  specifically  written  with  IE  in  mind  or  is  it  because  IE  has  good  compliance  with  styles  and  html(omigod,  omigod,  OMIGOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)  Chuckle  ?
