I use it, moderately happy with it, but a long overdue version 2 looks like it may be upon us sometime - currently with the beta testers.ChiMusic said:How many will give an AOK/thumbs up for me to use this (Agnitum Outpost) as a free FIREWALL for another computer?

I recommend this proggie to everyone.. Epsilon Squared 'InstallWatch Pro'
This prog monitors all your software installations and records them to a database. You can export the registry changes to a .reg file and undo them later. This is useful for tracking changes made by prog which you are trying out and you can easily do a clean uninstallation later.

Never use a Microsoft product when you can use something else. Sun invented Java, they make the best. Microsoft saw the possibilities of Java, and then "invented" something really crappy. I repeat, NEVER install the MS virtual machine its eeeeeviiiiiiil....plextorman said:LOL, LOL..M2-that`s it.Used to run Opera 7-it is nice.I`ve still got it somewhere,but I haven`t bothered to reinstall it.Sun Java 2 seems better than the MS version.Started using that with IE.I thought Mozilla`s mail options were better organised though..hmmm...Thunderbird..Had any problems with it,or has everything run smoothly?
Some great points there.Thanks.I`ve had experiences in the past with alternative browsers.I was having problems with some sites/pages (https,etc) because the browser in question was not fully IE compatible.big_gie said:Never use a Microsoft product when you can use something else.

Never had any problems with sun's virtual machine. And if you use sun's java sdk, then your sure eveyone will be able to see/execute your program/applet.
I never used Mozilla's mail client. Since last christmas, I was using Netscape v7.01 e-mail client (witch is like Mozilla v1.2 or something...) I wanted to try Mozilla suite a month ago after formating, but it was ugly. Not "not usefull", just plain ugly On the web site I saw the Thunderbird thing... "Well, gonna try it..." And wow! This is simply great! It's not as full as Mozilla Mail, not yet , but it has everyhing you want in a simple, fast, robust, small, secure, cute, client
One thing I didn't like in Mozilla was the old crappy "Netscape v2.0" theme... Even Mozila v1.4 (and surely v1.5) is ugly... But Thunderbird is really nice! The next versions will be able to get some extension, wich is like a plugin, so all the small details you even wanted to have would be there One can even write it's own! I've heard they would like to put an Hotmail (and maybe yahoo, not sure of this) as a default extension...
Here's Thunderbird's release notes (or homepage?)
They already have locolization for German, Italian, Polish and Slovenian (for v0.2) and many others for v0.1 (like french ) witch I actualy use.
Anyway, you have to try it to love it
I also recommend Firebird (v0.6.1), wich will replace the Mozilla browser. Astounding! If you think Thunderbird is just "ok", Firebird is REALLY nice! hehe
It is faster than Opera as rendering pages (and by FAR FAR away faster then Internet Explorer), much more tweakable and much more compatible with sites than Opera. The only "down point" is it takes long to load (15 seconds on my P4 2.0Ghz, 512Mo) but there is some optimized builds (hey, its open source, you can optimize as you like ) (pls see http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=23006&highlight=aebrahims+optimized for the optimized files) and it then takes 1 second to load! Really nice
You can find a great FAQ @ http://texturizer.net/firebird/tips.html wich give some nice tweak option; theres even a way to block ALL ads! I've never seen an add with Firebird yet with those settings! Firebird is blocking Popups by default, so no more slow program to filter ads...
Well, its a sure try-it-love-it
