    Skeptical loungers will await the comments of the early adopters on whether it is, in fact, fool's gold.

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Does this mean that 6.0 will take the place of 5.5? Do we wait for WindowsUpdate for official upgrade? Is it worth upgrading from 5.5SP2? Just want to know. Thanks. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: IE 6.0 is Gold (IE 6.0)

    I have been running IE 6.0 since early testing of Windows XP on my test machine and IE 6.0 beta with Windows 2000 on this machine for about 2 months. I have NOT had any problems with either. Just let it be known that the Java engine is NOT supplied as part of it. You will need to go to Windows Update for "VM" or to Sun for their Java engine. Some sites require that you have one or the other. Most sites that require it with offer to link you to a site to down load a copy.

    <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15> I can't seem to find a shot of what 6.0 will look like - layout, I mean. Have any?

    Hi Dave:

    Downloaded the minimal setup and saved it away for other installs. So far so good. No problems in the Lounge. Download Accelerator Plus re-integrated ok. Copernicus Active Search left intact. Prior settings (favourites, etc.) from IE55 migrated.

    Time will tell. But, now using it as my default browser.

    perhaps you have a sales-pitch of benefits over 5.5? <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Dave..I installed 6.0 this afternoon on my computer...so far have gotten 1 error popup..via the
    Explorer Error Reporting popup...maybe just a random thing..having email server problems at same time, so could be connected to OE 6...who knows. I forgot to write down what the error was all about <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15>
    Other than that, no problems...*fingers and toes crossed*

    I've had a beta version of IE6 for a couple of weeks working under Win 2kP. Have added enhancements. Found it very stable and had no problems at all.

    Definitely Au and not FeS2
