    yup :p IE sucks ... Also i guess this is basic Microsoft quality which means release some shit program and patch the security holes on the fly as people start reporting :p , saves lots of money i guess

    Wow, where should I start. IE disgusts me and so do the people who act like they don't have any problems when they're using it.

    ff is the only way to browse. I did upgrade to ie8 just to see what it was about and have a toolbar on there that they dont make for ff yet but everytime i close ie it crashes it sucks so bad.

    Update: Ohhh my so after constant attacks I finally configured norton with help of my best friend and let me tell you I have never ever been so disgusted and so annoyed. It was a all day/night battle I never used ff it just hung out, I am not a technical person so seeing my computer/my living/my money under attack made me ill. no more ie for me norton as of this morning went thru 1342 seperate attacks. I think it is tired and thinking man she is a dumb ass.

    If i> u then exit
    i don't mind IE8, keep in mind i use FF way more since i think its a far better browser. I need IE for remote access into my sbs server and a couple of other things that just will not accept FF. Sometimes i just rdp in thou.

    Congratulations on becoming a MS alpha tester !

    MS have made IE8 very difficult to remove - especially on XP. Most times you need to uninstall service pack 3 before you can remove IE8, then reinstall sp3 and reload IE6 or IE7.

    Golden rule: never use any MS product until its been on the market for at least 12 months.

    I hate IE, I also cannot stand using friends laptops/PC's, everytime I seem to use one they have like 20 toolbars installed and around 300px to see the website in underneath all of the adware toolbars that have been installed.

    IE is slow, messes up your PC, has lots of flaws and security issues.

    IE8 is a POS but unfortunately we have to optimize our site for IE6,7 and 8 as a big % of the users use this crappy product thrust upon them by Microshit.

    *start rant*

    Dude! Tell me about! I cringe when someone asks me to help them with their computer and I see Yahoo, ask.com, and like 3 other random toolbars installed. My mom does that shit all the time. I will uninstall all the toolbars on her computer, and then the next week they will be there again. I'm like "wtf mom do you use the goddamn ask.com toolbar???!!!! Then take it off!"

    *end rant*

    I upgraded to IE8 and down graded to IE7 the next day. It was far too buggy and a lot slower, i will give IE8 another shot after they patch the heck out of it but for now i don't recommend upgrading.
