just say that u dont like IE.....
i use opera too(bcoz IE didnt had tabs)
u just hate IE coz u love opera no other reason guyz ..

Even Opera consumes loads of ram last count.. 4 windows open 67 mb of ram and here is a screenie to prove it(though with 1 window but 49 mb,after 15 mins of browsing)

It's beta and its stable applies for IE too.

Most sites and software(which use link grabbers) are optimized for IE.

Just dont blame IE if u hate it.

BTW i use opera too.

PS: not posted here to fight with any1 :p

there is no problem with ie except that it is too much incorporated with working of windows and hence the new bugs found for it can be used to do system wide damage ad also ie is very poorly written as compared to other browsers so it has loads of exploits out there .

i beleive not messing up comp with lot of softwares. after doing tests on various os and browser environment.... i have learnt that if you want to use windows then u have a compulsion to install ie. and if ie is there then i dont prefer adding other browser. if windows worked fine without ie, i would install firefox as my only browser.
