I dumped traditional IE 6.0, and have begun to use Avant Browser ( www.avantbrowser.com ).
I also tried Mozilla Firebird, but it was far too slow for my liking.
If you are tired of IE, Avant Browser seems to be a dream come true. It still uses the core IE engine, but is about 100 times faster!!!
Some of the skins and other features are just way too awesome!!
