    You can have as many as you like, Julia. I have something like 15 on mine. LOL The only time you might see a conflict (and this is rare) is when you have two different ones open at the same time.

    If you are wanting to test your site in all of them so you can have your site work in them all, it isn't worth your time. As of January 2006, IE makes up 65%+ of the internet, Mozilla Browsers (Mozilla & Firefox) Make up over 28%, and then the rest taking up the last 8%. Opera coming in third with 1.4% and then netscape trailing in with only .4%.

    Also you need to take into consideration the type of person you are attracting to your site. If you have the average run of the mill internet user who know just enought to enter the domain name. Internet explore is about all you need to concern yourself with. If you have a website aimed at a community of more experienced computer users, gamers, or even younger users, you will likly want to make it worth properly with firefox.

    By all means if you want to make your site look like you want it with every broswer go ahead, but just figured you should know the statistics first.

    PS. stats from w3schools.com

    Thank for sharing your notions, but statistics specially economic related statistics are in 90% of the cases just a bundel of lies, i should not believe so hard in them.

    Thanks to the statistics many people regret that once they had a windows system, of course after knowing linux.


    If i where skilled enough to make a functional website, i should not omit any effort to make it so, disregard who is gonna use it, jus because functionality has nothing to see with contend...

    PS stats are nothing, but just a bundel of lies

    This community site always loads using MSN for me. Not happy with that. Can I load BlueVoda sites without having MSN taking up loads of my screen area? Also, when I try to access a link from an MSN email from BlueVoda, MSN stops me loading it! I just fell out with MSN....can I stop it interfering with BlueVoda?

    MSN has nothing to do with BV. If you want your Internet Explorer to open up with the Vodahost (or any other page) go in IE, Tools, Internet Options, and in the very first field fill in the URL of the page you want. You can give it your Forum CP in the URL, so it will open directly in the forum.
    As for receiving your emails directly on your desktop, i think that certain providers do not allow free accounts receivingand sending mail from and to other servers than theirs. If this is your case, you just have to live with it. Do a simple thing: Go in your CP, and bookmark it. So as sson as you connect to Internet, click on the bookmark and you will get directly to your CP. You can even do tha same thing directly with your mail page.

    Never knew I could have more than 1 browser either. Ok, now I'm the new owner of four: IE, FF, SB and Opera. Will test drive the latter two...thanks for this info! Question, do you 'have' to have a default? For now, FF is mine.

    It makes life simpler to have a default then when you click a link, say in an email, it will simply open in your default browser.

    I use SB, btw, and I LOVE it. It beats IE and Netscape by far! Happy test driving.

    hello everyone........

    I just noticed this thread and would like to ask advise on problem im having with my firefox.....

    When i look at my website on firefox it shows my burning lines a couple inches away from were they are supposed to sit as well as some of the graphics some of the images are into the words and so on.
    everything is out of its place???? is it just mine or is the problem on all people who view my site using firefox.

    i checked on my internet explorer and everything looks fine.

    what could be the cause of this problem?

    should i delete firefox and download it again?

    thanks

    No, redownloading will not solve the problem. I checked it and it's the same for me. Probably the fire lines have a piece of positioning code that is interpreted differently in IE and Firefox. post the code in here, as well as the method you have used to place them in your pages, to see if something can be done

    Cool Re: How many browsers can i have on my computer

    Hi navel....

    awwww man i was afraid that was happening because i downloaded firefox on moms computer and it showed the same.

    Well the method i used was the image box in blue voda i have those burning lines in a folder with other images and backgrounds on my desktop folder

    C:\unzipped\muddyswirl\faverite backgrounds\burning_line.gif

    are the bottom images out of wake also.
    the marqee and the computer with 24 hour business as well?

    i hope i dont have to do the index page over again but if its what i got to do then so be it.

    hopefully you got a trick up your sleeve and can save me about 4 or 5 hours.

    thanks

    Well I test drove all 4 and not too keen on Opera, FF is ok but agree, there are some issues especially with showing pics on certain candy sites I frequent. SB is pretty much tied with IE. Kinda swayed toward SB after racefan's suggestion. But 15? like him? Don't think so. 4 is enuf. May take Opera off...So that's my feedback and I flip/flop the default between the two until I figure out which works the best for what I am viewing.

    Learned here thought on the stats of IE and FF, never knew that IE was that far ahead. Thought FF was becoming more popular...

    LOL I don't use them all, I'm just constantly on the hunt for newer or better things. It will take a lot for anyone to convince me to use anything but Maxthon or Slim Browser.

    Ok, i've checked your site in both IE and Firefox. It is NOT a problem with the images, it is a problem with IE and Firefox giving the TEXT different spacing between lines. Your text in Firefox is LONGER than in IE. Just open your page both in IE and Firefox, make the two browser windows resizable, and put them one beside the other. You will see that the text in Firefox is spreading more than in IE. The images instead, are placed by BV in absolute coordinates, defined in pixels, so they are always in the same position.

    I don't have any trick for that. I can only suggest that you create a table in the central part of your page, and put both text and images in the table cells. This should solve your problem.

    I use both IE6 and FF. Somethings IE6 is just better, a lot of programs are made to be seen in IE.
    The forums in FF are more user friendly, IE tends to be a little to technical -like reading a treaty on physics- lol.

    Stay away from IE7 until they fix the bugs.

    That's a fact, Jack! (I mean, Bill!) That thing had so much promise and they've made a mess out of it.

    As many browsers as wished can be installed and that is final. It is better not to open multiple browsers at the same time.

    I have IE7 and the Mozilla project called seamonkey.

    I used this for all my oreviews before publishing my site and use it as my default browser. I use IE when I need to for sites that are only IE compatible.
