Question Accessing Gmail [Resolved]


Hi Folks,
I installed redhat linux release 9. I need to know a couple of things. I have got two browsers installed by default, Konqueror and Mozilla. However how do I access gmail webpage. Seems that they only support IE 6.

Secondly I am not able to play yahoo games. Doesn't KDE come with some default jre thingy?

Get Mozilla Firefox. I know for a fact that it works with Gmail. I'm using it right now, and I've used it earlier today to access my Gmail account.

Both Mozilla and Firefox can access GMail - in fact, they both have an extension that can be installed to tell you when you have GMail. Another one will let you compose mail.

As it hasnt' been answered yet...
Yes it does, it's called Kaffe, and IMHO it's a pile of turd.
Get the official SunJava. It's not too hard to install.

That's the SDK. You don't need the sdk. Go to java.com and press the "Get it now!!11". I think it's not so big a download (I can't actually see, it's loaded with scripts so it says "Congratulations, you have the latest version".
