IE is bad and disliked because it exposes your OS to more than any other accepted browser does. It does not follow the WWW standards and will render broken code/pages as it think the coder meant to code them, which can be a threat.

The upcoming IE8 will default to standards mode, meaning some sites may not work if they are coded to be IE-specific!!

It still won't be able to display the most simplest standard confirming websites either. For example:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd";>
<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>></TITLE></HEAD><BODY>
