    It's better than IE in almost everything. Does anybody know when Greasemonkey will be able to work w/ Beta 5? Only the foxy proxy add on works with it right now, and I have several add ons, including the Cyclone Theme and Greasemonkey, that I miss right now.

    That's arguably a good thing

    At any rate, you can use ie tab to make any page render with the IE engine and associated ActiveX controls.

    Install the IETab addon. You'll get a little "firefox" icon down on the bottom of your taskbar. Click on that, and it will change the renderign engine for the current page to IE, but it will still be in a firefox tab.

    Most certainly. It is so much faster than IE.

    All you're doing there is rendering the page in Internet Explorer inside a firefox tab.

    I didn't say that no ActiveX is a bad thing (it's not), but not having it makes some things fail to work. Things like the Windows Update site.

    I know that's what you're doing, but it still allows you not to have to launch IE separately. It also allows you to view pages that do not comply with standards properly or have IE-only content without having to launch IE.

    Microsoft Update in Vista does not require a web browser at all, so that will become an increasingly small deal. Actually, you don't really need a browser to do it in XP either.

    Unless you want to see some of the non-critical updates (at least in XP - I gave up Vista for Linux at work).

    non-critical updates show up in the update center in vista without having to use a web browser at all.

    Way too many addons that I use a lot are not updated yet. I wish it would get out of beta.
