If IE were a brand of condoms, the population of the planet would’ve doubled by now, easily – and if there’s one thing we don’t need more of it’s people…or virii.
It’s got more security holes than features so unless you’re getting paid by MS to test the damn thing out – get something else…and when I say get something else I don’t mean one of those bastard would-be-browsers like MyIE, etc…that are basically just a shell that renders using the IE engine – that gets you nowhere – get something that has its own engine.
I’ve been using Firefox for a while now, and it runs just fine; it’s got the tabbed browsing, it’s got the pop-up blocker, and there are tons of extensions available for it – and it has it’s own rendering engine – and is therefore immune to all the crap that’s just waiting for you to run IE in order to start climbing it’s way up your ass.

Oh, did I mention Firefox is open source?
