I can't think how you can restore your bookmarks unfortunately. But I can offer some advice for later.

Once you have finished laboriously entering all your bookmarks into FF, simply click the bookmarks menu and select Manage Bookmarks.... In the windows that opens, click the File menu and select export. Now save your bookmarks.html file somewhere safe and easy to find again. Even back it up to CD or other removable media if you really, really want to keep your bookmarks safely archived!

Tried out Netscape before, say, a couple years ago. It wasn't particularly impressive, but I suppose the browser's gone through a couple of upgrades since then.

I currently have four browsers running side-by-side on my PC - Firefox, Opera, IE, and Deer Park, which is the browser I use most often. Deer Park Alpha 2 is the latest beta build of the next major Firefox release, and its got some awesome features - my personal fave is the Sanitize tool, which I configure to run every time I exit the program. Yay for automatic cookie/history/temporary files clearing! *Beams* I believe Firefox runs just a teensy-weensy bit faster than Deer Park, though - although that may just be me. Whatever the case is, those two browsers are most definitely at the top of my list.

IE, meanwhile, still remains on my system, although I've pretty much wiped out any sort of icons or shortcuts it has lying around on my desktop. Yeuch. I swear - if it weren't so ingrained into the XP operating system, I'd have that thing binned in a jiffy. *Shivers*

I hardly ever use Opera at all, but it is there just in case Deer Park or Firefox decide to crash on me. I've been lucky so far, I guess, but NO WAY am I going to go around rummaging into the depths of my All Programs list for IE for my surfing the 'Net needs should that ever happen. I haven't used it much yet, actually, but it is pretty decent. Clean-cut layout, fast, easy to use...and mouse gestures have got to be the coolest thing in the whole of Internet history since tabbed browsing. ^_^

True, but not completely. As you know, the WindizUpdate site works for the most popular alternative browsers like Opera, FF, and others. It may be the easiest way to get the updates through automatic updates though.

I even need IE for my Antivirus Updates!!


How come? :tazz:
