Double ugh on that last ugh. Funny how people want 'features' in IE that are really bugs. If I remember my HTML correct, the title attribute in a link is used to create a tooltip. Alt, well is for alternate viewing methods such as when you don't want or need images but you just want the description of the image without the download.

I am cruising around on Firefox 0.8+ GTK build on Fedora Core 2 (careful installing FC2 -- it can corrupt your partition table on double boot systems). I love the browser. It literally launches in about a second on my Athlon system running the 2.6 kernel. I stopped using the suite maybe about 3 months ago. The move away from the suite was a good move. On linux you have Evolution for mail and Pan for a newsreader; there really is no need for a bundled browser suite. With separate apps if you really like the Mozilla newsreader or mail a lot you can just add it in as an extension. I was just missing a light weight browser. Firefox filled in the hole nicely, less truly is more. Konqueror is okay but not great for surfing.
