I tried IE 8. Probably my reflexive allergy to IE. Found it sluggish, maybe even frigid. It wouldn’t display the WordPress Dashboard properly. Well, such things don’t sit well with a grumpy old man like me. So IE was again banished. [I don’t have IE on my Task Bar or Start Menu.]
Saw, serendipitously, that FireFox 3.6 RC1 was available as of today. << Have I told you that the word ‘Serendipity’ comes from an Arabic word, ‘Serendib,’ for my country of birth, Ceylon? >> Took is as an omen.

Yes, 3.6 claims not to support Windows 7. Not good.
But, I installed it. Installation was quick and smooth. The ‘readme’ told me I should try a ‘Persona.’ << They didn’t have a grumpy old man persona. Tried one with sunsets to see if that would brighten my outlook towards FireFox. Cute. The wife and kids would like it. Too flash for me. So went back to the boring old default, which is much more ME. >>
Have only used it for a few minutes. Writing this using 3.6 RC1. Keeping all appendages crossed and stomach in knots. Hoping FireFox will go back to being half-way decent again.
Of course, I will keep you posted. Have a great day. Good luck.
