This message popped up when I tried to correct a mis-spelled word from maybe an hour before.

Looks like I'll have to be a better proof reader.

I used to use Firefox, but found that it would not open certain functions on certain pages. You may want to up grade to IE 7.

Firefox has an option to emulate IE.

I have both on my system and run Firefox 90% of the time and only use IE when the site appears to really really want it bad.

Depending on what you use on your computer, IE 7 may cause problems. I got IE 7 when the upgrade pop-up came. But my Roxio DVD Builder stopped working. After doing research, I learned that I had to downgrade to the old IE for my stuff to work.

I've gotten that time ran out message too. Did you guys upgrade the website? Put it back!

I would have added this to the above message, but I can't! Previously, I had corrected spelling errors hours, if not days, later.

From what I can see, the time you have to do any corrections is mere minutes.

So I will continue my b... bemoaning.
It usually isn't until you read your post later, that you see the errors. If you had seen the errors in the preview, you wouldn't need to change them. Also, what if you read something that you posted, and decide that it was totally irrelevant to the thread? (like this)

IE7 is responsible for many and various computer errors at this time. it is wreaking havoc with many third party software programs also, especially A/V applications. i use firefox 99% of the time but downloaded IE7 when it became available. i had a nightmare of a time with several applications i currently run. uninstalled IE7 and all is well.

I don't usually read my posts after I type them. I don't use a spell checker. I usually spot my mistakes right away or as soon as I hit "Add Reply."

Well, I'm a member of the K-Meleon browser development team. We have a free amazing browser based on Mozilla and similar to Firefox, but with a pair of important difference (and I'm not talking about the skin).

K-Meleon runs on the older laptop you can find, I've tested it on old (vintage?) 486 and runs smoothly. It's so minimal the resources needed to run that it can work anywhere, it requires just 5 Mb of RAM to run.

But this is not the best. It runs and loads the webs faster than any other browser and under any computer you want to try. Firefox is currently overloaded with useles tools that slows down it, K-Meleon not. But don't think this is a blank browser just for slow computers, has some interesting features as an integrated translator that does not eat any resource because it just redirects your query to Babel Fish web page and shows the answer (yeah, call it a leecher :) ) Also is completely customizable at your desire.

I wish you all could take a look to this creature running on a Pentium II 350 Mhz faster than most of my friends ultra expensive sci-fi computers under Internet Explorer or Firefox.

So just imagine it running on a modern computer! It flyes, man!

You can check it out at the official international web here (just remember to download the 1.02 version and not the experimental 1.1 alpha version, at least until the final 1.1 version it's finished):

http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/

Or my spanish version at my web page:

This 'thing' has nothing to do with which browser you use. It's a moderator thing.

I hate it.
