I have a question,Sid,that I hope you can answer for me. Can I use item #8 on the list, User Agent Switcher, to access Microsoft Updates and finally rid myself of that bloated and slow "monster" IE8? Using primarily Firefox 3.6.xx

I haven't looked at IE as that big a problem, I only use it for the M$ updates.

. . . Firefox and Chrome are my usual web browsers.

I as well. IE8 takes about 2mins. to load on my machine, whereas Firefox and Chrome take about 5 sec. Think I'm gonna give it a try and download some "optional" update such as Silverlight or something. P.S. I dont believe IE8s slow speed is in any way cookie related, but I could be wrong!
