    Some browsers use alternate fonts so that using cols=40 gives a different width in IE than other browsers. I've added a screenshot of what this looks like in firefox.

    A stype tag should be added for consistency. Instead of just cols=40, you should also add style="width:540px; height:250px"


    i.e. change from
    Code:
    <textarea name="message" rows="20" cols="40" wrap="virtual" tabindex="2"></textarea>
    to
    Code:
    <textarea name="message" rows="20" cols="40" style="width:540px; height:250px" wrap="virtual" tabindex="2"></textarea>

    firefox does what it's suppose to do: be fast. Firefox is about twice as fast as IE in my experience. On a unrelated note, I switched from 1.5mbs to 3.0mbs the same night i switched from IE to firefox, but i'm sure it's totally unrelated.

    I do have a few pet peeves with firefox though. 1. can't copy an image into the clipboard. 2. can't drag n drop bookmarks or rename them without loading the bookmark manager, and 3. the optional tabs.

    I'm using firefox only because they use a smaller font in the menu. :eek:

    Firefox is good, but if you are talking about loading time, nothing beats IE, since it's integrated. But since IE sucks, you should check out MYIE2, its a tabbed alternative, and offers many of the functions that Firefox has. The only bad thing is that they seem to update their program at least a couple times a month.
