I've spent the better part of the day (Hil will tell you "all of it") learning why web developers HATE Internet Explorer. I'm aware that it is slow, un-secure, and generally not up-to-snuff, but only now am I realizing how much they do not co-operate with industry standards regarding the worldwideweb.
If you are using Firefox already thank you. If you're not - click here and download it.
If you make the switch for no other reason than the look of things: to view the aesthetic difference, check out this page in your Firefox browser and then in your Internet Explorer browser.
(Hil, I'm comin' home now baby...)
