    alright, go to "tools", then go to "options"....then you're going to see different tabs at the tops, "general","privacy", etc.....you're going to go to the "privacy" tab.....you're going to be looking at the first tab which is "history" and it's going to say, "remember visited pages for the last _____ days......fill in the blank for however long you want it to save all your browsing and general history.

    i know that Internet Explorer is good, but the security is some what of an issue, i've heard a lot of Opera, but i've never used it, what would u say is the best browser including firefox?

    most people consider Opera the innovator (sp?). firefox has many of Opera's features, but Opera comes out with them first (as it is not free software) and people who like those features add them into the opensource Firefox and release a new version. generally, anything you can do with opera you can do with firefox, especially after you get the right extensions and plug-ins. but some prefer one of the other for various personal reasons. for me, it's firefox...the program's functionality and usability are perfectly suited for my purposes, and far surpass anything IE ever did.

    for the most part, yes :D

    there are many ways to cover one's butt whilst online, but using IE can sure put a hole in your armor. but hey, use what works for you. IE is too bland for me, lol. i love having my adblockers, built-in IRC program, forecastfox, graphing calculator, and great security and themes.
