Your file? Weird, I found the same at the link posted by Matrox http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

And me who had though you actually hacked that list togheter to enhance your dialup experience.

On the plus side, now that I have the source of the file, I can update it frequently.

back to FireFox.... ;)

This article that I wrote includes a screenshot of the new firefox. In it you'll see why FireFox is truly better than Internet Exploder. I'll give you a hint, it has something to do with graphics.....

yeah, you could capture media and graphics before, but you had to do a lot more work, like examine url history and page sources.

btw, check out the excellent FLASHBLOCK extension. it recently got updated to work with the current 1.0 version (before that it only worked with the beta). this is especially an awesome extension for dialup users because you can still see w/e flash while your page downloads become that much faster.

one thing i DO miss in firefox, tho, is the ability to save out a page as complete, compressed file (i think it was MHT format in IE). sure you can save the html-only or the complete heirarchy of items in an index file and accompanying folder, but each one has drawbacks. saving it one file that could be split up later if necessary was damn handy.

btw, another great extension is ZOOMVIEW. with my aging eyes it's nice to be able to see close-ups of any smallish image right in the browser without having to save it off and view it in irfanview.
