And whats about the Phishing protection build in into IE8 ?
If IE8 connects to the Microsoft Servers everytime to check an unknown URL there is the possibility that microsoft saves the IP and the requested URL. So it might be possible to track the user behavior even if this privacy option is enabled, Microsoft says that they do not save the antiphishing URL requests but i dont trust them enough. I still prefer Firefox because the list of Phishing sites is saved in an local cache so it does not connect to the firefox or google servers to request Informations for the URLs.
YES, Windows has now implemented some of the futures you can use with linux since some time now.
I Have downloadet the Beta it looks really nice but the Hardware requirements a a little bit to high, the 3d GLX Desktop environemnt for linux does the same with much less resources:D.
Looks really nice, but am prefering Mozilla Thunderbird or evolution since there is no Linux version of Outlook.
Mozilla Thunderbird 2 will be the Ultimate Hit i promise you, and a hard competition for Outlook !!!
