    Question Whats wrong with it!!!
    I always hear on these forums that Internet Explorer on both mac and windows is crap. I use it right now on windows and it's fine for me. I've tried other browsers, but im comfortable with IE. So yeah, what wrong with it and why do you hate it!!!

    I don't hate it, but I'd rather not use it. IE was my main browser until Apple gave us Safari. IE is remarkably slower than Safari. Give Safari a try, you might just switch.

    The only reason I keep IE around is to use it at sites that aren't Safari "friendly."

    Exactly! i don't hate IE either, but after getting used to the tabbed browsing in Safari, I don't want to go back to IE.

    Lets see.Well..for windows, IE is a HUGE security gap!!! It doesn't have pop up blocking..

    for Mac...It just doesn't have that touch that apple gives it products..

    How can it be faster??? Can't Microsoft just copy it or something?? But still,you think that if every other browser has tabbed browsing, they could kind of GET THE POINT !!! Anywho... anyother reasons?

    PowerBook 12" Combo Drive/867 MHz/256 MB RAM/40 GB hard drive/Mac OS X 10.3.5/AirPort Extreme it sux
    Its called fanboyism. Biased Mac users (about 85 - 90% of this forum) insist that it sucks because its not made by Apple. These people often have no life at all. They sit at home typing "YOUR PC SUX YOU NEED A MAC!" and "OS X IS SO SEXY" and "THE IPOD IS SUPERIOR TO THE GMINI'S AND THE KARMAS!" on PC message boards. They often tell people to spend thousands of dollars to buy a Mac, instead of the hundreds to buy a PC. They don't realize what crap their systems are. They don't realize that they are missing out on Doom 3 and all these games and software. And they don't realize that the Apple mouse is just a one-buttoned piece of crap.

    Need I say more?

    why am i not suprised you posted this? we all have our reasons for liking a certain type of computer more than another. and since these are MAC-FORUMS i will assume that most peoples choise here is a mac.

    on to your question.
    i use safari because it is a more recent browser. M$ hasent updated their's in a while. and tabbed browsing desent hurt

    Ok... now im using mozilla. I jsut want to try something new, but i dont find it any different than IE except tabbed browsing (which i dont use) and skins.. which all kind of suck. I like IE. It feels faster!

    microsoft stopped developing IE for mac so what you have now is the most updated it will be. The browser windows for safari look better in my opinion and I am a big tabbed browser fan

    Just my personal reasons, on a PC of course since I've been using Safari on the iBook.

    ActiveX, popups, constant crashing, lack of tabs, lack of skins, it's not that fast (FireFox anyone?),....
