We will probably get told that this is off topic and shouldn't be on this 
mailing list, but I felt that I needed to add my 2 cents worth.

I converted from having excite also, but had no problems.  I have found 
that I need 3 different browsers.  I used to use Netscape 4.7 but found 
that there were some web sites that had links or features that I could not 
use.  So, I got Netscape 6.2.  The unfortunate truth is that I have found 
that I need THREE browsers (Netscape 4.7, 6.2, and Internet Explorer) to do 
ALL of the functions I run into.
