I Love Opera!

Written by Gary Konigsberg

Why is a singer-songwriter and fan of Elvis, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and roots rock and roll being so effusive about Opera?

Well I'm not talking about opera music here, norrepparttar Phantom ofrepparttar 119095 Opera. I am talking about Opera -repparttar 119096 third most popular browser onrepparttar 119097 internet.

What is a Browser?

This is a software product which allows one to surfrepparttar 119098 world wide web and also receive and send email and use other software applications such as instant messaging. Microsoft's Internet Explorer isrepparttar 119099 most commonly used browser and Netscape is second. AOL has it's own browser which is actually a version of Netscape which they now own.

Most cyber surfers are quite unaware that they have an option beyond these two. Microsoft and AOL are able to monopolizerepparttar 119100 internet in this fashion. But there are choices. In this article I am going to review a few points ofrepparttar 119101 available browsers.

Internet Explorer - If there is any way that I can get away from IE then I am open to it. It is enough that Microsoft monopolizesrepparttar 119102 internet with their Windows Operating System, it is a bit much that I have to also use their browser. This having been said, there are certain very positive features that make Internet Explorer quite efficient. Thumbs Up - 1. If you are needing to fill out a lot of forms or enter your password many times as in checking email,etc. then IE is extremely user friendly. It will actually recall your user id and other information that you have entered into specific data entry slots before so you can avoid having to re submitrepparttar 119103 info again and again. It also isrepparttar 119104 only browser that I have found that works with a software product called Gator which will recall your user id, password and personal info, including credit card info and pops up withrepparttar 119105 correct info every time that you visit that same site where you submitted that info before. 2. You can drag links torepparttar 119106 browser tool bar and others are adaptable to be included there for instance, Yahoo Instant Messenger and Yahoo Companion( with access to allrepparttar 119107 cool Yahoo channels ), MSN Messenger and other software products integrate directly into your browser screen and are accessible. What is also good is that you can remove them and also choose which ofrepparttar 119108 various bars you want to see on your screen and which you don't. Thumbs Down - 1. It can be quite slow to load and even more so if you add more features into your tool bars. 2. It can crash often. 3. It is often targetted by hackers.

Netscape -


There used to be many Netscape fanatics. In fact, it predates Internet Explorer and many people were quite loyal to it. Withinrepparttar 119109 last couple of years though it was co-opted and corrupted by AOL who now own Netscape. AOL has done such a thorough job of messing it up that it is receiving very negative reviews in every case that I have seen. A friend who used to love Netscape wrote a blistering review of it and it was all true. She stated that it looked like "Internet Explorer in a clown outfit". It crashes, it takes a long time to load if you can get it to load at all, it is slow, etc. Avoid Netscape 6.0

Thumbs Up

Netscape 4.73,repparttar 119110 previous version is a much better product and you may like certain features that are not in IE such asrepparttar 119111 integrated html editor,repparttar 119112 integrated email features and more.

Neoplanet - Thumb sort of inrepparttar 119113 middle.

This is actually IE in disguise again. The difference between this and IE is that you can choose how it appears, you can choose to add or subtract certain tabs not available in IE and you can integrate an email account into it. Onrepparttar 119114 other hand, you cannot drag software products onto its tool bar as you can with IE. So, it is prettier than IE and in some ways more functional, and in some ways less functional. This is just a matter of preferance.

Now we get torepparttar 119115 exciting part -

Enigma - Thumbs UP - This is a very lightweight browser that will download in a couple of minutes. It will provide you a no frills and far more rapid access torepparttar 119116 internet than IE will. It has integrated email with your email server be it Outlook Express, Hotmail (both Microsoft products) or Eudora or any other email client and hasrepparttar 119117 basic features, bookmarked favorite sites, etc as in IE. Thumbs Down - Not as sophisticated or multi functional as IE, BUT it gets you out ofrepparttar 119118 yolk of having to use Microsoft and it isrepparttar 119119 fastest of allrepparttar 119120 browsers I have tested by far. The name - it is far from an Enigma, I would say that Netscape 6.0 is much more of an enigma.

Written by Edward B. Toupin

Many people purchase these great "Information Packets" onrepparttar Internet that list jobs and tell them how to find a telecommuting job.

It's time to learn how to takerepparttar 119096 Internet byrepparttar 119097 horns and findrepparttar 119098 jobs that can make you a successful telecommuter.

--- Information Brokering ---

One ofrepparttar 119099 big things onrepparttar 119100 Internet is "Information Brokering." This involvesrepparttar 119101 packaging and repackaging of information, then selling that information onrepparttar 119102 Web to thousands of people.

The early Information Brokers scattered their wares all overrepparttar 119103 Internet and nowrepparttar 119104 same set of "reports" exist in a thousand different places. Many information brokers today userepparttar 119105 free reports that are floating around onrepparttar 119106 Web and repackage that information for sale as "information packets."

For example, there is an old report called "The 1995-2005 Job Outlook in Brief" that was distributed back in 1995. I purchasedrepparttar 119107 original set of reports on CD to see what it was all about---the idea was that you could resell these reports and make money. But, how many others were reselling or giving awayrepparttar 119108 same report? Today, you can findrepparttar 119109 same report on numerous Web sites for free!

--- But, how can I find a job without a guide? ---

The "hidden jobs" are not listed in these information packets so don't feel that you're missing out. There are very few exclusive lists out there as most employers would rather go out and locate their employees themselves than to risk being inundated by millions of non-qualifying resumes.
