Hi IT World Staff,

Here's a good article that looks at Opera, Firefox and Internet Explorer on Windows 2000. It might help you with your decision.

Try Opera or Firefox - older versions

The reason I am answering this is that a good solid alternative browser for Windows 2000 Pro w/ sp4 has not been mentioned.  That browser is Mozilla SeaMonkey 2.9.  SeaMonkey 2.9 is built on Firefox 12.

At least give it a shot on your old machine.
