I have been using Firefox for several years and fine it a very good alternative to IE 6. According to Firefox the latest version is compatible with 9x\ME.

From the Firefox site:

Operating Systems

* Windows 98
* Windows 98 SE
* Windows ME
* Windows NT 4.0
* Windows 2000
* Windows XP (Recommended)
* Windows Vista

http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/syste...quirements.html

Minimum Hardware

* Pentium 233 MHz (Recommended: Pentium 500MHz or greater)
* 64 MB RAM (Recommended: 128 MB RAM or greater)
* 52 MB hard drive space

Many of us have used Mozilla open source browsers for quite a while. Since it is free, you can give it a test drive for a couple of weeks...... and you will find it has almost all of the "new" features if IE7!
Cheers,
John

What used to be Ask Jeeves is now Ask . com I've recently started using as an alternative to IE and Firefox. Both work on my WinME PC system...

Ask.com is nothing more than a website El Tel
It is not a web browser. That is two different things

To wit: in order to get to a website one must have a browser to get there
In the beginning there was the command line.
