"The worst browser in the World."

The worst browser from the big five (Opera, Chromium, Firefox, Safari, IE). Does not support web standards W3C, slow, crashes in complex web-pages with scripts & flash, very slow Java Script engine Trident ( Opera Carakan is in 40 times faster than MS Trident )

It is strongly connected with OS Windows and it cannot be removed completely.

Epic fail.

Pros
  • 1). Maybe GUI, but Chrome & Opera is better ( Opera is customizable & Chrome is minimalistic )
Cons
  • 1). Speed. When I open more than 4 tabs with complex scripts, IE freezes.
  • 2). Do not pass Acid 3 test.
  • 3). Do not support CSS3 & HTML 5
  • 4). Very slow rendering
  • 5). Very slow Java Script engine.
  • 6). I can't fully uninstall IE from Win7.
