    Why not using Avant browser which based on IE?It's fast and easy to use,of course I choose it instead of IE due to its stability and compatibility.

    If you like Trident Engine ,I suggest use the Avant browser.The download is relatively small, the interface is extremely stable, mouse gestures and dockable tabs. Pop-up and ad blocking are excellent. The ability to block ActiveX, images, Java, and more "on the fly" is superb.

    IE 8 opinion

    Quoting Lakotaelf:

    "Many of these reviews here are of no value at all for all they do is slam and give no details, wow, even a dope can do that."

    Read your own review LakotElf and you will perhaps see that all it does is praise and gives no details, wow, even a dope can do that!! At the end of the day a browser needs to be user friendly not geek friendly and Firefox and Google Chrome both do that (alhough Googles customer support is not the greatest). In my experience IE 8 is a crock of "something less than good" and I actually prefer IE7. No details..rather like YOUR review. But then I don't claim or infer that I'm an expert, just a user. Personally I have uninstalled IE8 and will rely on Firefox, Chrome and IE7 (mostly Chrome). To go a little further than you did in your less than informative post, I would simply say that the Customer Support experience after installing IE 8 left one hell of a lot to be desired, and customer service was something I required rather a lot of given the endless problems experienced with IE8. Yes it may have been my configuration, but I sure as hell didn't receive any good information that would have led to me making an informed decision on that!
