The installation was easy. Like all good programs these days you can install it in the drive/folder that you prefer.

Okay I'll admit it up front. You can't do without this program if you browse the internet on a regular basis. I can't believe that the major browser manufactures haven't gotten their heads out of their butts and imitated Fast Browser. The first thing that really makes the big difference on your browsing experience is that you have a tabbed interface. Let me explain what I mean. Instead of you opening up multiple browser when you go from site to site you have the new page on a tab that is on the bottom of your browser. Want to change to one of the sites? Just click the tab. Microsoft has gone to this interface on some of their programs including Front Page. They may smarten up someday.
