Question about IE7

Postby sox 06 » Sat Feb 24, 2007 12:56 pm

I have the latest version of Internet Explorer. Sometimes with my favorites, the logo next to the link changes to a different logo. This is what the Cafe's logo looks like right now and what it should look like. Any idea why this is happening?

Ha I figured someone would say that. Other than this little glitch, I've been pretty happy with it.

I've only used IE7 about a handful of times. And every time it was on someone else's computer. Basically, I'm a Firefox person. Firefox rules.


But to guess at your question, sox 06, the little icon may be changing because you're clearing out the cache or whatever that stores them little website icons. I'm guessing because like I said, I don't use IE7.

What's the big difference between Firefox and IE? I've never used Firefox before but I hear it's great. Is it worth upgrading to Firefox?

I think Beano is closest to the truth here. IE6 has "issues" with holding on to your icons. I've tossed stuff into my Links folder and for a session or two their custom icons will be in there, but after a while they revert back to IE's default web icon.

It's a Microsoft product. These kinds of things are to be expected with them, unfortunately. :-/

YES



:-b



Firefox is stable, it has tabbed browsing, it is quick and it is intuitive. It looks good, there are a TON of add-ons you can put on it to make it super-useful, and it is not a memory hog.

I switched to FF a year or so ago and I haven't even touched IE at home since. I only wish I had FF at work.

I just downloaded Firefox and I like the spell check but it seems to run a bit slower than my IE7 :-? . And the picture seems to be stretched out a bit. The drop down box here is about half as long with Firefox than it is with IE. Is this normal?
