    IE 5.50.4134 v. IE 6

    I have Internet Explorer 5.50.4134. I receive the requests from Microsoft to upgrade my IE to 6.0 (and I think there is an update to that somewhere). My internet works just fine now and I am trying to determine whether or not I should upgrade. Can you give me the pros and the cons to the update and a recommendation? Thanks.

    What version of Windows are you running? It's been said that IE6 is not appropriate for Windows 98 or ME, but I have no personal knowledge of that.

    I like 5.5 just fine. You might, however, want to get the latest cumulative security update if you haven't already loaded it:
    February 2003, Cumulative Patch for Internet Explorer (810847)

    I have IE 6.0.2600 (need to do some updates) and Windows ME (one of the few) and have had no problems of any kind. I'm curious as to the source of IE6 not being appropriate for Win ME.

    All I know about IE6 is what I read in this very Lounge. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
