    Any Choice Is Better Than Ie

    I just don't care for Microsoft.  I've used Firefox for quite awhile and am really enjoying Google Chrome now. Looking forward to when the Google Chrome OS is available for PC's. Sounds like that might be in 2011 with Netbooks coming out in late 2010 with Chrome OS. Google...

    More Holes Than a Swiss Cheese!

    Reports all over today of a "zero day" attack on IE 7,affecting versions 5 and 6 as well...i.e. the bad guys are exploiting a hole on the day it becomes public,giving Microsoft "zero days" to come up with a patch. A "get in and steal your passwords"...

    As Long As There Is Another Option I Refuse

    Internet Explorers has far too many issues compared to all of the other options out there. I felt like a miracle had occurred when I learned I could Chrome instead.

    Ie Currently Fails Badly Acid3, Html5 And Java Vm Compliance Tests ...

    IE currently fails badly ACID3, HTML5 and JAVA VM compliance tests ...When it comes to day to day behavior, it can be jerky and unresponsive. It takes loading several addons to Firefox to have it be as bad as IE. Why up to 30% of the global user base uses IE today is beyond me...

    I Fight With It At Work Everyday

    I have to use PCs with IE everyday at work and I spend 8 hours a day fighting with my work computer. When I get home and want to use my own computers I prefer my Macs and use Safari or AuroraFox on my G5, and on my one and only PC (HP Mini Note 2133) I run Ubuntu Linux and use...

    But when it comes down to it, couldn't care less. Call me an uninformed consumer, call me low-tech. I'll take my information whichever way I can. I will not refuse to use any browser. I'm still using E on my new computer. And I suspect Google is already spying on my every move...

    because I knew that Internet explorer was going to be a prime target for viruses. I have too much music and too many pictures to risk that.

    IE is probably one of the worst browsers ever. It's slow and crashes way too much. Firefox is the best in my opinion, I've been using it for 5 years. <3

    I don't use IE for one reason: because its freakin' slow compared to Firefox. I don't like waiting forever for a page to load and with IE, that's often the case. So, I switched to Firefox. And I love it! ;)

    Poor Performance.

    It's one of the slowest browsers out there, and there are ALWAYS security issues. There's no way to customize it to your liking, as can be done with many other browsers. I can't see using IE if there are other alternatives. Personally, I prefer Firefox (although I use its Linux...
