Out of the Blue

Huzzah and kudos to Chatbear's Bagpuss for taking a bunch of time yesterday to iron out a few things on the forums here that have helped smooth out their operation a bit. He's quite a busy guy with enough on his plate to keep him altogether too occupied to start with, and I can't thank him enough for his efforts.

As previously mentioned in this thread, anyone on the fence about Mozilla/Firebird/Opera should download Avant. It's a shell for IE that gives it all the functionality of the web browser component of Mozilla and Firebird. It's blazing fast, kills pop-ups, has mouse gestures, lets you open links behind your current tab with a middle mouse button click, and includes just about anything else a modern web browser should (only issue is security, but we're savvy enough to deal with that I would think). Plus since it's just a shell you keep all your settings and have all the functionality of IE. Best solution of them all, in my opinion.

The download is less than a meg and it has a painless uninstaller if you hate it. I can't really see how someone could, though.
