Not really answering your question, but I use Firefox most days at Tafe
off a usbkey, and I find that the most awesome plugin to grace the
planet is SessionSaver.
It's unbelievably handy to be able to just close the browser, head off
to class, move to another machine, and pick up where I left off.
Probably not that useful for your work environment (I assume you use the
same computer all the time), but if you're moving around between Windows
pc's it's invaluable.
