    some people are trashing IE for no reason, just because they use other browsers and they think only their **** is the best, exactly like other things, only what i use is the best...bla,bla. i personally use FF and i also used IE and i never got any kind of problems, no viruses, is fast, starts fast, it properly loads almost all sites. and now with ie9 they they really made a very, very good browser.

    The very first browser I used was Internet Explorer 3 (on a 56 kbit/s modem), but at that time I had absolutely no clue at all regarding the possibilities of the World Wide Web. I only used it for looking at pretty pictures of Darth Vader o.O

    It should be noted that until about 02-03 that high-speed internet wasn't really a standard, so there was no need for flashy features as they'd take a lifetime to load on 56k

    PC users running Windows 7 today have it really good with IE 9 and really fast broadband connections. Back in 98 or 99, I remember running Windows 95 with a 56K modem and IE then was like really slow and buggy. I eventually ended up using Netscape Navigator which was part of the software kit from my ISP. Yeah, bad old days of the Net :)
