Walt Mossberg: "You may never

Walt Mossberg: "You may never go back to Internet Explorer again." In the current episode of Mossberg's Personal Technology, he sings the praises of tabbed browsers. Of course old hat.



"The Web browser is probably the most frequently used category of software in the world. But in recent years, the browser most people rely on -- Microsoft's Internet Explorer -- has been stagnant, offering very few new features."


He recommends Safari for Mac (of course,) and NetCaptor for Windows.


Of course in knocking Internet Explorer he neglects to say that both NetCaptor and MyIE2 are relatively thin skins over the core IE ActiveX controls. So much credit still goes to Microsoft. Sorry!


On Windows, I've found MyIE2 somewhat better than NetCaptor, but both are better than IE.
