    Hi everyone, I need some advise, my pc is running Win XP Pro sp3 and itís about 3 years old.
    I am currently using IE6.

    My question is should I go to IE7 or IE8, I have heard that IE8 still has a lot of issues, I am not too good with troubleshooting, so which is the easiest to upgrade too and the most user friendly.

    Hope to get some help, Thanks.

    I'd go with IE8. It is faster & more stable than IE7. The number of sites that do not work properly with IE8 is decreasing. If you have an issue with a site you can try it in compatability mode with a push of a button.

    I'd go with IE8 as well. I seldom have issues with IE8 or internet sites in general.
    Make sure your os is in good shape prior to upgading.

    I have recently switched to FF, but I also use IE 8. I also use IE 8 at work. I find it more stable than IE 7 although both are much more secure than IE 6.
