What is a web browser?

A web browser is a piece of software used to access the internet. The web browser goes out to grab data, brings it back to you and displays it on your monitor to let you interact with the website.

For users who are using the Microsoft's Windows operating system, the most likely web browser they're using is Internet Explorer, or “the blue E" as some people refer to it. Those using Apple's OS X, their default web browser is Safari.

Internet Explorer and Safari aren't the only web browser options you have. There is also Chrome and Firefox, both of which are free downloads.

What is an operating system?

Operating systems run your computer, laptop, tablet and phone. The operating system is the brain of your computer and is responsible for telling all the other pieces of your computer what to do. When you click on an icon to open up a program it tells your computer what has to happen to wake that application up so that you can use it.

The most common desktop operating system is Microsoft Windows (XP, Vista, 7, etc.), followed by Apple's OS X.

Yours, The Mods

Mods - FOURTH time for this glitch in as many days. I'm using a Dell desktop if it makes any difference.

Scenario: reading a thread in 'my favorites'. FInish & hit "back to top". Then hit Favorites to go to the next thread. Everything is stuck. Won't move forward, won't move back. I can't even 'sign out'. All four times I finally just closed out thread with it stuck thinking & still logged on.

Anyone else? Any thoughts?

Dear MinusTwo,

We are having trouble replicating the tech issue that you describe using the same device and operating system, etc. Can you try to clear your cookies and see if that helps? Keep us posted.

Is it possible to add an ER +, PR -, HER2 - section similar to the Triple negative section and HER2 + section?

I believe roughly 15% of initial diagnoses are +,-,- and I've noticed similarities such as high onco type scores compared to +,+,- and lots of questions pertaining to treatment, recurrence, etc. of estrogen-only fueled cancer.

I have bookmarked about 12 or 15 + threads pertaining to this diagnosis and am happy to send the thread names so they can be consolidated.

Thanks for considering this request.

I think part of the reason that it's so hard to find the threads we are looking for is because there are too many forums.

That said, it's interesting that we have a HER2+ forum and a triple negative forum, but we don't have an Hormone (ER and/or PR) Positive forum. Is it assumed that all the ER+/PR+ people just hang out in the Hormone Therapy forum? I'd think there are some issues/concerns for this group that aren't specific to hormone therapy,

ER+/PR-/HER2- (which is my diagnosis too, and I wish it was easier to find all the relevant threads) is a subset of Hormone positive, but with some unique issues and concerns. The same is true for ER-/PR+/HER2-, which is more unusual but I know there are a few threads floating around, although I'd have no idea where to find them.

Is it possible to create sub-categories within forums? That could be a way to consolidate and reduce the number of forums, making it easier for people to land in the right place and find what they are looking for, but would still allow for sub-categories for any subtypes or issues that warrant multiple threads because of different issues and concerns (recognizing that some subtypes/issues might be fine to have a single thread within a forum).

If someone wants to see if it's possible to create sub-categories, I'd offer up that the "DCIS plus HER2-positive Microinvasion" forum could be moved under the HER2+ forum. Having an HER2+ microinvasion raises some unique questions and issues but it is an extremely narrowly defined diagnosis which really doesn't warrant it's own forum; this seems to be supported by the fact that no one has posted in that forum in 7 months.
