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."

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?

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?

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

Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System

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?),....
