its a good bet you may be getting screwed over as you surf the web at this moment, IE is notorious for allowing malicious code to run on your pc without you even knowing.

i suggest switching to Firefox asap, before you get totally screwed...

(hah, j/k)

IE (imnsho) is only good to make sure your site is viewable on the majority of ppl's computers.

Opera was and still is my favorite.

There are bugs with both Opera and Firefox, tho (thanks, mab).

Opera, something to do with the operawrapper (don't remember exactly anymore) and Firefox, mem usage is the main one. (Already happened to me).

Konquerer is still a kick ass browser. Very similiar to IE, except more secure and it has nifty features like changing your browser's identity and an option for translating web pages in the "Tools" menu.

Advice: Switch over to another browser, and only use IE when you *have* to.

Make sure you change the settings in your comp though, b/c pop-ups and sometimes certain links will still open with IE.
