Wizer,

as per your suggestion I downloaded "chrome".

Now, as I move from topic to topic, website to website ,  my screens appear  about a quarter inch short all around.

I stretch them out with my"mouse". But when I switch to another screen, they are "small" again.

How do I permanently fix my screen size?

If the problem is what I think it is...make sure you have only one Google Chrome window open..then make sure it is other than maximized..so you can drag it to change it's size, and then do that. drag the sides and top or bottom as necessary to fill the screen, so it's not really maximized but it's resized as large as you can get it. Then close Google Chrome and reopen it.

The settings should stick.

Hope that makes sense. Let me know.

I think I'll wait until someone develops an ad- and script-blocker for it.

More fallout from 11th September.  That single act, brilliant by whomever did it, changed America permanently -- and not for the better in my opinion.  Now it's safety first.  Hitler who understood better than anyone the profound impact of a surgically targeted terrorist operation says it best.

It is.

I just downloaded and installed it. I almost feel like I'm hanging on for my life when I load pages..it's actually hard to keep up with it.

Assuming they have solved the bugs that plagued this browser and caused unexpected lockups...this is the only browser I'll be using going forward.

It's also got an optional default homepage that shows your most recently viewed pages as thumbnail graphics which are clickable links.

Installation is fast and Firefox and/or IE bookmarks, passwords, and other settings can be imported during the install.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday that police, under certain circumstances, can initiate an interrogation of a suspect without the defendant's lawyer being present.

By a 5-4 vote, the conservative majority overruled a 23-year-old Supreme Court decision that barred the police from initiating questioning after a defendant asserted the right to an attorney at an arraignment or similar proceeding.

The 1986 decision held that once a defendant invoked the right to counsel, only the suspect, and not the police, can initiate the contact.

The ruling was the latest in a recent string by conservative justices expanding the power of police to question suspects, but it does not change the landmark 1966 ruling barring the police from questioning a suspect who invoked the right to remain silent or have a lawyer present.

The decision was a defeat for Jesse Jay Montejo, a Louisiana death row inmate. He was convicted and sentenced to death for the murder of a dry-cleaning operator during a robbery in 2002.

He initially waived his right to a lawyer and was questioned by the police. He told several conflicting stories. Several days later, he appeared in court for a preliminary hearing and a local judge appointed a lawyer to represent Montejo, who could not afford an attorney.

Later that day, police investigators approached Montejo in prison and he again waived his right to a lawyer.

But Montejo later claimed the police had violated his constitutional right to counsel by interrogating him without his lawyer being present and pressuring him to write a letter confessing and apologizing to the victim's wife. That letter was later introduced as evidence against him at his trial.

The Louisiana Supreme Court and then the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Montejo's appeal.

Writing for the court majority, Justice Antonin Scalia said there was little if any chance a defendant will be badgered into waiving the right to have counsel present during police-initiated questioning.

In overruling the 1986 decision, Scalia said, "The considerable adverse effect of this rule upon society's ability to solve crimes and bring criminals to justice far outweighs its capacity to prevent a genuinely coerced agreement to speak without counsel present."

Liberal Justice John Paul Stevens, the author of the 1986 decision, disagreed.

In dissent, Stevens said the dubious benefits of overruling the decision are far outweighed by damage to the rule of law and the integrity of the constitutional right to an attorney.
