IE always has been , and forever will be completely hopeless.
I just got sick of the non-stop malware magnet that IE is, with it's huge memory footprint (not even a footprint, more like a canyon) and buggy code support.
Try loading a co.cc domain in IE and see what happens? Apparently I'm not connected to the internet (according to IE when trying to view a co.cc site)... but FireFox can view it just fine.
Why does 95% of everything Microsoft makes have to SUCK SO BADLY? With all that money and stuff, you would think they could do things the right way, but it's just so hard for them. It makes me sad really since things could easily be so much better.
