Never used IE, it’s always been a featureless piece of junk. Ever notice there wasn’t a spyware problem until IE won the browser war? IE almost single-handedly ruined Web browsing. I like how IE added tabs, something Opera had last century and the Mozilla browsers picked them up around ‘02. RSS? FF has had the live bookmarks well before ver. 1.0.
I used Netscape 95-02 (2.x until 7.2, skipped 6), Mozilla .9x-1.6ish, then Firefox starting with version .7. Ditched Windows years ago too.
RIP, Netscape, I miss the days when you were king. If anything deserves to die, it’s IE. Ridding the world of that pollutant would do us all a favor.

I never really cared for IE, but when I started FReeping and viewing similar websites, I ran across a modified version called Fastbrowser (no longer being developed or supported). I liked Fastbrowser because it was one of the first to have 'tabs' and it incorporated MS Agent, which allows the computer 'voice' to read to the user. That is nice on lengthy articles and user's will old eyes. Fastbrowser uses the IE engine and some of the IE plug-ins.
I still use Fastbrowser for FR and similar websites and use Firefox for most other browsing.
