    "Worst Browser"

    June 27, 2014  |   By mike673

    Version: Internet Explorer 8

    Pros

    none. I cannot think of a thing good about it.

    Cons

    Internet Explorer 8 continuously locks up webpages.

    Summary

    Don't use Internet Explorer. Use Google or Mozilla Firefox instead. You will be glad you did.

    "Internet Explorer 11"

    November 20, 2013  |   By Mike7244

    Version: Internet Explorer 8

    Pros

    So far there's nothing good I can find about it, except with Norton I was able to save all of my passwords.

    Cons

    Sucks, its the worst search engine that Microsoft has ever created. I never saw something that has so many flaws. When you do a search it constantly locks up and have to constantly use task manager to shut the tabs down. The live tile version is exactly the same way. Another problem on their home page when you click on the main article tile 90 percent of the time now it doesn't work or the page can't fill itself completely in. They need to fire the creator or whoever created 11 the worst on in their history. When I try to report a problem it's near impossible to let them know. USE CHROME OR FIREFOX. It's such a shame when these idiots tied it into their new search feature but it doesn't work. False advertisement on how great 8.1 is the greatest search ever, NOT.

    ""The Download location page is damaged." - Microsoft"

    April 15, 2013  |   By easeltine

    Version: Internet Explorer

    Pros

    2013 - One can actually see images in IE 6 if you are going to use this Explorer in older MS operating Systems. In our current world IE4 to IE5.5 are now WORTHLESS! IE 6 is a functional Browser for the FAT32 or NT4/2000/XP Operating Systems by Microsoft.

    Cons

    2013 - IE6 is functional, IF you are some kind of masochist. This is REAL BLOATWARE, as is most MS products! If you use it for a little while it will c _ _ _ out on you.

    Summary

    If you are going to use some kind of multi-OS box, or just fiddle around with an older MS Operating Systems DO NOT use Explorer IE6. The other choices operate better than Explorer in the current Internet world. For example, Firefox 12, Opera 10.63, Netscape 9, and older Sea Monkey are more responsive and in my experience have better graphics than Explorer IE6. One cannot use Chrome w/ anything below Windows 2000 for NT, and also none of the FAT32 OS's.
    MS Marketing understands that the only way one can spur sales on modern software is to make older software unusable. MS is a master at their art.

    "My favourite browser since i bought my PC(with IE 6)"

    August 2, 2012  |   By Coa96

    Version: Internet Explorer 8

    Pros

    Everything is very fast, its even faster than google chrome. User interface is great, adress bar is awesome - everything is well organised

    Cons

    Reputation - Many people have problem with IE because their windows is in terrible shape (and that's the reason why they start hating IE)

    Summary

    In my opinion IE is the best browser, i've been using it since version 6 and it has never dissapointed me.(sorry for bad English I am from Serbia)

    "it's total crap"

    July 6, 2012  |   By DSWDobson

    Version: Internet Explorer 8

    Pros

    let's see, during the few minutes it works before the message "internet explorer has stopped working" it does what you would expect from a browser

    Cons

    it stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working and stops working

    Summary

    it's complete crap, get the picture? Total waste of hard drive space, and my experience with Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit so far isn't much better. I never had a problem with 32bit. Microsoft has gotten so dang fat and lazy they don't even try to make a product work right until they've sold millions of copies and people start to complain
