Why not to use Internet Explorer 6

Internet Explorer 6 is not a good or safe browser for these reasons :
  • Has many security flaws
  • Does not show web pages correctly
  • Lacks common features other browsers use
  • Can be made to run/install a program without you knowing
  • Can be caused to perform actions you didn't tell it to
There are other good web browsers which are safer and perform better than Internet Explorer 6.

Washington Post --- "Internet Explorer Unsafe for 284 Days in 2006"

--- "Internet Explorer 7 vs. Firefox 2"

Security Focus --- "Time to Dump Internet Explorer" (2004)

Here is a site called BrowseHappy which also talks about Internet Explorer being unsafe and other browser options
