FirefoxIE

Make Firefox like IE - in a very superficial fashion. Don't worry it's not a tutorial on introducing IE security flaws into the Firefox code base - it shows you how to set up Firefox with an IE LnF which could be useful for dragging across the techno fearing luddites in your family who refuse to upgrade to that there new fangled Firefox because they are 'used to' IE.

The reason my father's still using IE is because it'd be hell explaining to him why the odd badly-coded page doesn't work, and the "well, don't use that page" argument won't wash with him. Which is a shame, 'cause it'd be better for him, so to speak.

Granted, the vast majority of pages work fine with it now, but I'm willing to bet if he started using it, he'd find about 10 broken sites in the first hour... Just not worth the hassle.

Yeah I'd give that one a miss too as obviously it'd be your fault that shite website coders can't write 'proper' code. ;)

Tell me about it. I keep an eye on it and so far it's not gotten any spyware/viruses/etc. on it so touch-wood it's okay. I'd love to set up ad blocking but the same problem rears its ugly head with so many special offers etc. processed through the same people that do the banner ads, e.g. offers from BA via email.

So he gets to deal with the ads...

Though firefox is far better majority of the people will prefer using IE as it is embedded in the OS
