Look! For whatever reason you need IE, fine. Just simply download google chrome and use it just when browsing this site. You'll be glad you did!
I still prefer Firefox mostly out of familiarity at this point, but I like Chrome too.
Either way, in all honestly IE really kind of sucks...it's failed to perform on par with its competition for many years and yet every copy of Windows has IE shackled to it (including Windows Phone). I'm no IT guy so I can only guess with stuff like workstations in an office setting, but I know that many network configurations require IE as the browser to function properly.
Of course, IE itself rarely functions properly which would lead THIS cynical @$$ to believe that the whole setup, therefore, is not functioning properly lol.
Like Daboo said, if you gotta use it because of work or whatever, fine (but really, should you be WORKING at your workstation
) but get Chrome or Firefox at home.
Actually, at this point, I'd recommend Chrome because I've been having a lot of trouble Flash Player crashing on Firefox. But this site works just fine on it.
