    Indeed, man...I can't imagine how some people can live using IE & Windows's like using a bike on the highway and wonder why everybody is passing by so fast ;)

    Anyway, let's help the man...if you really love IE and don't want to try "exotic" things like Opera or FireFox, I suggest to get an IE-based browser like or They are both free and much much better than IE.​

    That's still the same crappy IE with a fancy dressing!

    Basically, you're right, but they have a lot of functionality added too, like popup and script blockers, multi tabbed interface and more.
    Better a bit better than worse :)
