Maybe... I'm not sure whether I agree or disagree on that point, but I'm a little cheezed off that IE does lag behind the Windows version in its feature set. My latest gripe has to do with certificates...Originally posted by hazmat
So anyway, think what you will of Microsoft, but they make an excellent web browser, probably the best overall out there.
yeah, ie 5 will show whatever flash sites omniweb shows too, but try http://www.beatles.com or http://www.gorillaz.com ... neither of them work in omniweb or ie ... something to do with showckwave/flash 5 ...Originally posted by beef

I never understood what it means wheh people say "omniweb is beautiful"... don't tell me it's the buttons on the toolbar... I think it gets alot of points just for being a functional browser that isn't MS... Nothing against Omniweb, but I don't really see much advantage over IE...
I wasn't only talking about rendering HTML.Mac Browsers aren't behind PC browsers. For example, Internet Explorer for mac always had a download manager. PC version of IE didn't.
HTML pages sometimes look different on mac browsers, thats true. But the cause for that is, that html is not standardized enough.
That's a subjective thing. I don't like the download manager. I prefer to tell the browser where to download the file, on a per file basis. It's not as obtrusive since I set the download folder to ~/download, though. I would be happier if I could configure it to close when the download it done. I find it annoying that it stays up.Originally posted by Dradts

Have you tried Netscape 4.75 for Classic? My Norwegian web-bank service, Skandiabanken.no, requires this in order for me to log in.Originally posted by kenny
There are other areas in which the Mac browsers are not up to speed, but the whole certs management thing was the latest thing I came across. Now, if someone knows something about this that I don't, that'd be cool...
