  • This is cool....

    I'm probably the only person who didn't know this until now, but just in case I thought I'd share it.

    I usually keep both Netscape and IE running for those times when a page just doesn't load properly in one browser, I can switch to the other. Also if you're into web development, you need to test your work on several browsers.

    I've been using the old "cut & paste" method of getting the URL from one browser to the other, but I just discovered that you can drag the URL from Netscape to IE and vice versa. Also, you can drag items between Netscape's Personal Toolbar to IE's Personal Favorites.

    I use a Mac, but this probably works on windoze too.

    May not be a big deal, but hey if it says a few key strokes, they all add up, and if nothing else, you can impress your ludite friends.

    Take care, Margaret

    Hey, Margaret! You're not the only one!!

    I never used more than one browser, period, let alone more than one at a time -- until the browser problem occurred this week here at the Gallery portion of the site. Not having any of my website favorites bookkmarked on Mozilla was an annoyance, so I was cutting and pasting quite a bit until I decided (after reading your post) to import my bookmarks.
    I am happy to hear there's another way of exchanging URLs.

    Thanks for giving me a useful tip!
    Yes - it works on PCs ( I don't use the term "Windoze")

      Hi Margaret, I didn't know that either although I run both browsers on my PC all the time. I prefer to use Netscape but I find many sites are not built for it so I'm forced to use IE for those sites.

        In a moment of weakness and on a friends recommendation I've just installed Netscape 6 to compare it with Internet Explorer. I just thought I'd ask what browsers people use and if anything else pops up as well as the usual Netscape and Microsoft offerings.

        Internet Explorer
        Netscape Navigator
        Any Others ?

        Apple's new Safari browser
        by winwintoo
        I just got my laptop back with OS 10.2 (Jaguar) installed and the new Safari browser.

        I love the browser. I've had trouble using IE for this forum - it would bounce and jump around and then finally settle at a point about half way down the latest message - not pretty. Netscape was better...

        Need help understanding Opera
        by jeaniesa
        I'm supposed to be ignoring Opera for the time being and just getting my site up and running, but this problem is really driving me crazy. Here's the issue. I have implemented pull-down menus for my site using JavaScript. They work great in all browsers EXCEPT Opera. In Opera, they don't show up...

        Missing scroll bar?
        by CJ Swartz
        My scroll bar, normally on the right side of my window, has "disappeared" today when I visit RetouchPro sites. The scroll bar is in view on other websites, and works normally. In RetouchPro, I have to view in full-screen mode to have a scroll bar. (This is do-able, but restricts my access...
