    Howdy everyone, it looks like Blazer and NetFront no longer work on a lot of sites. I am wondering if there is an alternative, still-functional browser for Palm TX anyone is using. Cheers!

    In a word, no. Web technology has moved on. The TX has not, obviously. ;-)

    Nope. My TXs are for local tasks only. :vbsmile:

    No. :vbtongue: For DateBk6 and MPG automobile records (gas, wash, service, tires, etc.) and some other well-used & well-loved apps. :vbsmile:

    Still use matchbooks to even out those table legs. Don't you? :vbgrin:

    I haven't seen a matchbook in a long time. Haven't even thought about them. I get enough junk mail to take care of table legs, and it's a neverending supply.

    Some people got Opera working on the TX, so that might be a partial solution. Search Brighthand, there are threads about it. It's a hassle though.

    The guide for installing Opera is linked on my TX help web page (in my sig), as are the IBM Java files you need to install, but I doubt it will help. It also is old, unsupported and unlikely to handle current web sites.

    The internet hasn't improved in 10 years, so you're not missing much. ;)
