    Only person who uses and loves Internet Explorer?


    Honestly, every one I know, bashes IE and says it sucks and it's so common for it to be mocked. I do not understand why because IE 9 (or whichever is the newest) is amazingly fast and fluid!

    The only reason I use Firefox over IE is ads. With Ad Block Plus I have no ads. . .

    Great vid. Thanks for posting.

    Although I've always used IE, I smile when it comes to the Karaoke part. I'm out twice a week singing.

    Believe me when I say that I tried to like it. But without Ghostery or Adblock I cannot succumb to Internet Explorer. Don't worry, I enable ads on websites I regularly visit (ads that are not intrusive or stupid).

    IE historically was plauged with security issues. Later releases are much better.

    However, as others have said, I've started using browsers that support add-ons and a few are important to me. And I use the Google Chrome sync feature extensively across my various devices, OS's, etc.

    Nothing wrong with th IE. I only had problems with IE10 - it crashed. But I also use Opera and Google depending on application. Firefox I only use in Linux.

    Yeah, looking at the latest Secunia vulnerability review, it seems they have improved somewhat:

    Oh, and one more thing, I changed a few security settings to make thing easier for myself and IE won't stop complaining; it's infuriating.
