    Although IE does suck, it is important to know that it is an introduction to users having free internet browsers. Netscape charged you for their crappy browser whereas IE was free. (well, it was part of Windows anyway) Netscape tried to sue them because of "unfair" marketing, but IE overcame that. She brought some great things to the table, but now ya'll treat her like a slut.

    although i don't use it cause it's quite buggy atm but have u tried ie9? it's actually pretty good, fast as well, especially at loading up (if u have no toolbars/add-ons etc.).

    and about the 'e', look here

    I use Safari in OS X Lion, or Chrome/Firefox in Linux (or Windows when I have it installed, which is very occasionally).

    Internet Explorer 8 and previous is pretty damn bad, but I really like what I've used of IE9. It's so simple and clean, and not a complete mess.
