    Internet Explorer 5 v. other versions (Windows 98/SR-2)

    Hi -

    I've been told (primarily by AOL) that I should upgrade from IE 5. However, I've heard bad things about the later versions. Should I stick to 'if it ain't broke...'?

    Thanks for the input,
    Curious

    IE 6 works fine for many Loungers.

    Curious,

    IE 6 should be more secure than 5 and also has some newer features.

    The latest version hasn't had any negative things said about it as opposed to V5. I'd say do it, make the upgrade.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
