I have used Internet Explorer for a long time. The laptop I'm using right now, a Compaq nc8230, is buggier than ksquest's moth collection. IE in particular has issues. I just upgraded to IE 7 thinking it would solve my problems. In a manner of speaking, it did.
Now when I open IE and surf over here to The Scratching Post, IE closes itself after loading about 20% of the page. No warning, no error message, just poof! and it's gone.
I went out and installed Firefox and I love it. IE told me that it did not want to work on this machine so I won't force it to do so. Who am I to argue with Microsoft?
