Internet Explorer is rubbish

Upgrade to Firefox 1.5!
Why do Windows users still use IE? I'm not really sure. I don't often get the pleasure of using Internet Explorer these days because I use Safari, Camino or Flock on a Mac, but when I do, it's a real eye-opener. It's slow, it's menus and settings are impenetrable, it complains at the smallest errors ("the page you are viewing contains secure and insecure items" - so what?), it has no tabs, it doesn't know what RSS feeds are, it doesn't comply with web standards and worst of all, the use of it leads to the installation of Spyware and Viruses.

As recently as this week, a serious browser flaw was uncovered that could lead to your PC being taken over by a remote user. This is serious stuff and is so easily avoided by installing Firefox. It's free. You could also try Flock, which is built on Firefox but does all sorts of cool Photobucket/Flickr/Blog things, or maybe Opera, although it isn't quite so free.
