Reasons to switch to a better browser then
I will give you just a few here
and I'll also provide you a bunch of links to other pages,
which have also considered to drop the support for it!
Here we go with the never-ending story:
*Not CROSS-PLATFORM compatible (Linux,Mac OS X,BeOS,etc...)
*Not OPEN SOURCE (nobody can try to improve it or add new features)
*Doesn't support PNG transparency until recently
*FLASH transparency very bad supported!
*CSS codes need lot of "hacks" and "work-around" to "fix" a correct layout on IE,
which almost double the amount of code sometimes!
*Missing the "TABBED BROWSING" until recent versions...
which mean no comfort and lot of memory lost for every new window!
*AJAX codes are partially or not working at all!
*The most UNSECURED and attacked browser ever!
*Scrambled layouts on different versions of IE!
*Each new version of IE was destroying the precedent fixes instead of making a sum of them and build a better version!
*Annoying and difficult way of cleaning History and Cache (so many clicks...UFFF!!!)
*Unfriendly and cold interface...like most of Microsoft applications - just SAD and GRAY!
As a conclusion: NEVER use old versions of IE or better switch to a real browser!
