Why everybody hates IE? cause it's microsoft?! or what?
I'm using it since was added to windows (and had acces to internet)and never had any problems with it. Opera, chrome, firefox why? they are faster? allows you to open hundreds of pages at same time?
They break standards (other browsers do too, but IE more so than the others), include new standards that are practically useless rather than following working standards, and up until now it was incredibly slow. I will withdraw this opinion on the new versions though, Microsoft are really cleaning their act up.
EDIT: Sorry, didn't realise how many pages there were.
