yes it does, but wine is lame.... i'd recommend using codeweavers wine tho, it's the only version that has some sort of configuration GUI.

btw. we're aware of the thread problem, jeremy should be on to it quick sharp...

I loath IE. I don't even run it on my win98 box at home. I use opera there and in linux. The only time I even consider running IE is when some n00b web designer did a pitiful job and failed to test it with anything but IE. Jackasses.

Mozilla as usual browser
I'm using mozilla 1.2.1 standard included with RH9.0.
Very nice thanks to its smoothed fonts (thanks xft)

Opera for more critical missions
When it comes to websites fully respecting W3C that Mozilla sometimes can't display correctly, this is the right choice. Appealing themes as well.

Konqueror for flexible ID
When wanting to go on my bank website (you know, for web banking) Konqueror tries to play its role not badly as it offers the possibility to make him being identified as an Explorer 5.5 on Win2000 for instance.
VERY useful when web banking with a website only developped for M$ stuff.

Though, since some weeks none of them is granting me access to my web banking anymore ... even when identified as Explorer 5.5 on Win2000 or Explorer 6.0 on WinXP and so on.

I assume thanks to the Javascript debugger console that there lies the problem. There's somewhere a Javascript error that blocks me to execute some banking orders.

That's my personal experience on this.

Have fun.
