Less Microsoft = Good Thing

I know this won't be a big deal for the geeks among you, but I'm pretty psyched about dumping Infernet Explorer and Outlook Express in favor of Mozilla. Not that I can, like, actually uninstall IE and not have pretty much everything within Windows grind to a halt, but I don't have to use it to actively browse the web anymore. With the growing number of vulnerabilities and exploits associated with it, I feel a lot safer (so all you good people keep using IE so that they don't start writing viruses that attack the Moz). It's less bloatsome that Netscape 7.1 was (I know the underlying core is the same, but I'm telling you, it's a lot leaner), the tabbed browser windows rock, the built-in anti-popup code is cool - why the hell not? I'll post on any problems I run into with either the browser or the mail client - I figure a thirty-day tryout is a good round number - and let you know if I'd recommend it for those of you even less geeky than me!
