, I'm forced to drudge through a long exposure to Internet Explorer every day I use the network computers. I don't like IE, and HAVE tried it. I breathe a sigh of relief when I can go home and use Firefox, Chrome, or even Opera over IE.
I don't like the interface so much as the other browsers, but that's personal preferance, so you can ignore that. IE doesn't really DO addons - I use Firefox for that. But the main reason I don't like Internet Explorer is that every Windows computer has it (unless you run an uninstaller, but the mainstream public won't). This means that hackers and scammers can use browser and OS-specific exploits. For me, and many others, it's a security thing. This isn't as surprising as it would have been if IE were a good browser (and it has been getting better, don't get me wrong).
