-You mean "But you still need a browser like maxthon because of some sites?"
I haven't found a site that I need to change to IE to view... Oh wait, some site a better viewed in IE because the way the images are placed on the page.

http://www.stopie.com/ieshells/ -That page is interesting. It also says something about Maxthon
"Basically, when using an IE shell (Avant, Maxthon, SlimBrowser and the likes) you are equally at risk to all the spyware, adware and general malware that IE allows to leak through."

-
I do use IE sometimes though. There must be a way around those problems.

I have found some sites that don't let you download because you use FF. You can't get rid of IE anyway with Windows because it's built into the operating system and I find it stuffs up XP.

Unless you install an extension that enables it.

RE: Internet IE Explorer
yeah but that the fact that FF doesn't have active X makes it safer which defeats the purpose.
