Ok.. Thanks.. anyway, it seemed to work without me doing anything.. The installer detected that I had 1.4.0 installed or something. On the other hand, Real Player wanted to install itself even though I unchecked that checkbox. And not only did it install itself but it installed itself in about a million places. Icons everywhere, bookmarks.. Very annoying.. :/

Only really major (as in "very noticable and annoying") bug so far is that the scrollbars in the sidebar are VERY narrow with the Modern skin. :( Otherwise, it's working fine, tho it's a lot slower than IE 6 to use.

Oh.. Just noticed another very annoying bug. While typing, the scrollbar on the right in this text area appears and dissapears for each keypress and the text in the textarea reflows and blinks. Hmm.. Not nice.. :(
