I said what I said and I meant it...

Ugg... whatever the hell your name is...

Face the facts... what I said is absolutely true.

Bitch, whine, moan, and otherwise cry all you want...

NS6 performs sluggishly under Win32 because of it's XP UI ala XUL. Period. This is the cost of XP.... run everywhere... but do it relativley slow.

If you don't *get* that then don't bother wasting my time with your childish remarks.

And to the other poster regarding GTK... I'm a windows man... linux appeals to me as a GUI platform about as much as Windows 3.0 running in 4 bit color!

You want to get into insults, etc... then fine but your lack of common sense is nothing less than utterly amusing.

Now... let's be civil for a moment here.... does anyone know (even you) how I can see what plug-ins are registered in NS6?

I've been using the damn thing all night now to give it at least half a chance despite my initial impressions.

I ran it through BrowserTune over at WinMag and was rather impressed with the results. The problem is that NS6 didn't fare so well in the multimedia area, i.e., embedded audio, avi's, mpeg's, etc...

I've been trying to find the proper a/v plug-ins for NS6 and so far I haven't had much luck.

Anybody have any suggestions regarding that?

Thanks in advance for any tips (except any smart ass ones that may come my way)
