My opinions here on the subject are legendary. I have been running IE since day one, tried Netscape, back to IE, tried Moz, back again, tried FF, and guess what. I have FF installed only to verify my web site (designed by me and on my IBM server) is accessable. Many people here bash IE, but I've had exactly zero problems. I do run NAV 2005, various spyware blockers (see my site below at the Anti-Spyware Suite link) and keep my three machines (two XP and one W98SE, the server) updated.
Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach that person to
use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks.

I have to make sure that my stuff is presentable in different browsers. I've been working with them for years and to this day -- I don't see why everyone's upset by one or the other.
I surf the net with both IE and Firefox. I don't see a difference--really, I don't. Now maybe it's because I don't care about browser security and I certainly can't differentiate a bug from a feature. Basically, it's not that important. I haven't worked with any customers who have asked me about browser scurity.
Is this just Microsoft bashing? I mean really? seriously??
What is wrong with IE and why do so many people(mostly geeks) hate it?
Is it security?(which I don't care about anyway.)
Speed? (it works as fast as FF on my computer and old laptop).
What are people doing with these browsers that makes them hate one over the other so much. I'll admit, I like tabbed browsing, that's cool! but other than that? I don't see why IE is getting slammed so much...
My customers ask me and I don't know what to tell them.
Please, no flaming... I'm an experienced web designer, not a J2EE developer or a C programmer, nor am I hacker wannabe.
Thanks.(looking for guidance here...)
