The real trouble spot I'm running into now is in web browsers. I find myself cycling between NN 4.77, MSIE 5.5, MSIE 5.1 for X, OmniWeb, and iCab for X depending on what has not irritated me recently.

Yeah, me too. I haven't tried icab yet, and I've been using Netscape 6, but otherwise I also keep going from browser to browser. I'll definitely try icab, and going back to a more stable version of netscape is an option I hadn't considered.

My IE 5.1 has decided not to let me paste anything into a text box. It also dies every now and then. Omni dies less often, but if I post something to yahoo (I don't know if I tried it here) it removes all of the blank lines, even though they show up in the preview, and posts everything as one solid paragraph. Neither one runs any of the few java things I use correctly. Netscape is extremely slow. And lots of other minor problems with all of them.

If this is a plot to get me to be willing to pay for a good browser, it worked. My credit card is ready to go.
