I have to admit that I do not know how to manage the cookies stored in IE since I avoid it as much as I can. Sorry that I was not able to help...
Interesting philosophy. But I don't understand it?
Supposedly IE 6 is better than Netscape 6.1, faster loading webpages for example. Netscape 4 versions were greatly lacking in features by comparison to IE5 series.
Also IE 6 does include a privacy manager which may block or allow user defined cookies. (No I didn't do this) Outlook Express 6 includes some enhanced security features.
I put some samples of my songs on my personal webpage and at least one Netscape user has trouble downloading WMA files and viewing java scripts on the homepage. Java was one of the many features not engaged in older versions of Netscape, but he is using new version.
But then I use windows operating system and IE is also made by the Microsoft so they probably have some secret advantages in windows environment. What operating system are you running?
Netscape 7 you say? To quote someone:
First off, nothing's a contender for Internet Explorer. You could make the world's best browser, a browser that dispenses free cash and massages one's shoulders with aromatherapeutic oils, and it's not going to defeat Internet Explorer unless Bill Gates drives over the everyone's house and installs it himself. I'd like to say Internet Explorer is entrenched on its own merits, because there is a whole bunch I like about the software. I'd like to say that, but you know, I know, and the Justice Department knows that inertia, ignorance, and intertwined installation programs have stamped that possibility out.
Or ponder this quote:
The benefit that this provides for Microsoft should be evident. Putting it simply, this means that any program a Windows machine runs becomes like a "sub-program" of Internet Explorer (yes, even Netscape Navigator) and because of Microsoft's dominance, software developers have to bear this in mind as they develop their products. They may not like it, but commercially they have no choice. This is the sort of trick Microsoft have been employing since the get-up-and-go, but it has landed them in trouble with the American Department of Justice who have labelled their desktop integration as uncompetitive and monopolistic.
