    IE6 - Worthwhile? (W2K)

    I have Windows 2K Office 2K (no patches) and I run IE 5. I have both IE5.5 and 6 and wonder if there are any good reasons to upgrade.
    I would hate them to be a bit buggy.
    Any thoughts out there?
    Thanks
    Peter

    Been running 6.0 since the beta and have NOT had any problems. Running it with Windows 98 Fe, 2K, Me, and XP Pro.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    For sure don't use 5.5. In my (very subjective) opinion, ie 6 is the best and least buggy of the lot. Quite a bit faster than 5.01. I had a lot of problems with 5.5, but 6 seems much more stable.
