    No I wouldn't use it, I used Outlook 2002 before just messing around but its ugly and cramped. Isn't Outlook suppose to be a big security risk ?

    As far as I'm concerned browsers rate in this order...Firebird, Mozilla, Opera and IE/MSN.

    I use Outlook for mail and I get in & out real quick...hehe

    Maybe I don't understand what is being talked about...all my IE favorites/links are already in my Outlook 2002, so I can use it as a browser without tricks they go in automatic so what am I missing here ?? i'm at TZ right now in Outlook 02....

    You can put a URL bar in the Outlook toolbar I guess, and use it as a browser - I wouldn't do it though. Well, for that matter you can do the same with MS Word - it will use your default browser.

    BTW, here's some more 'Extremely Critical' IE vuneralbilities: http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...27/bs_nf/22765

    I think it would be nice if you were working in a corporate environment and wanted to surf the web in outlook so it looks like you are taking care of customers but in reality you are surfing.
    LMAO

    If you want to do that try "Ghostzilla"...http://www.ghostzilla.com/

    "So sneaky, you can surf right in front of your boss and he won't suspect a thing."
    -- TechTV

    Ghostzilla browser for Windows shields you from the looks of people around you, when they try to see if you are surfing the Web.
    With Ghostzilla, they see your normal work screen. You see the Web page, drawn to appear inside your work application and to look like that application to a bystander.


    If someone comes too close, move the mouse away from the Web page and it disappears, leaving the original application frame. When the coast clears, another mouse move brings Ghostzilla and the Web page back inside your application.

    EDITI've used it and it seems to perform exactly as they say. And yes it's free...

    Yep I have used ghostzilla, but on some PCs, you cannot install software. They lock you down, way down. Boot up, input password, surf and use installed programs. You cannot even update the programs.

    Very true. But if they have you locked down to that point then they are probably SMSing you to death, watching every move that you make and maybe even keylogging...
