What tab are you talking about?

Is this part of Firefox now? Because I automatically install an extension for this:
IE Tab - an extension from Taiwan, features: Embedding Internet Explorer in tabs of Mozilla/Firefox...
IE View 1.3.7
Lets you load pages in IE with a single right-click, or mark certain sites to *always* load in IE.
I do have to say, Expert on Photoshop...I am NOT! Instead of using an eraser on any photograph you really should be using the Layer Mask instead. That way if you mess up you can always just "draw it back" by switching the black and white and just painting again.
Sheldon: Commision...Yep! Um...can I pay you in Macaroni and Cheese? I seem to be overflowing in the stuff....two preschool girls; it's either that or hot dogs!
I'm going to post another excerpt later today on the Curved Frame. I've had some questions about it and I really think that needs to be posted as well.
Thanks again everybody!
The nice thing about the clip mask/layer mask is that you can use all the shades of gray (from black to white) on your mask, as necessary. Makes it easy to effectively "feather" some of the edges . . .

Dale, there's no such animal in a right-click, nor is there any such option in the menus.

Have done as commanded.
Is it worth it? What I mean to say is, except for this single instance, I've never wanted anything whatsoever that IE has to offer. Of course, I could be missing things without realizing it, right?

It depends entirely on the sites. There are less and less sites now that don't work well with FF but there still are.
Particularly those that have all sorts of forms, voting and things like that.
I've been using FF for a very long time, and as I said, and as Dale said, we have always used this extension. It's become a reflex to right click and see IE.
BTW, I'm using the 2nd one that I mentioned.
And, it was not a command
Some "folks" design with IE (v6 or 7) ONLY! Some code on a page is specific to IE only and is NOT standards compliant (but works well in IE). Micro$oft has finally acquiesed and is making IE8 fully standards compliant in its default mode. (finally)
Anyway, if you go to a page that doesn't seem to work right (and you KNOW there should be something working there), then (with the IE TAB extension installed in Firefox) you switch rendering engines (to get it to use the IE rendering engine) and voila! You find out the designer of the page was only interested in IE users and the heck with the rest (... somewhat). If you surf the web alot, the addition of this extension might be useful. I don't like IE very much at all. But, for those sites that have no interest in standards compliance (that is, think everyone should use IE or assume only IE users will come to their page), I find this extension very valuable! I don't have to leave my browser at all. (yeah!)
I've used the IE TAB extension for so long now that I forgot I'd even installed it ... and took its functionality for granted. There is no difference in Firefox that's apparent use when using the IE rendering engine except for the font ... it's different. But, if you know what CSS is on a given page, you can switch rendering engines and compare how IE fares against Firefox. In some cases it's pretty dramatic. IE has been very poor at adhering to industry standards ... instead, it tried to force their "standards" on web users by sheer numbers. Hence, one of the reasons that it's difficult to get a web page to look the same across many different browers. Quirks ... lots of them. That goes for the CSS implementation, how tables are interpreted, layers (well, divs), fonts, etc.
This page of Jennifer's uses an object code that only renders well in IE (or a browser using an IE engine). It's not standards compliant code and so isn't interpreted correctly by other browsers coming to her site. So, with IE TAB installed as an extension in Firefox, all you need to do is switch the rendering engine and you can see it in all its IE driven splendor without having to resort to opening another browser!

I always enjoy your tutorials and have learnt so much from you in the time i have been a member. I visit your website often looking for new stuff. I have bought from you many many times and have never been disappointed. You make me laugh when you say you are no photoshop expert, but you certainly impress me everytime. I don't think its the 'expert' side, i think its more how creative you are. many people on here probably are photoshop experts, but do they have your creative flow?? not too sure. No offence to you photoshoppers meant!!!!
anyway thanks for the newletters and monthly free backgrounds and keep up the fantastic work!!
oh and p.s. love the accent!!!!
