IE Still Sucks

Out of curiosity, for two days after installing Windows XP Service Pack 2, I used Internet Exploder to do my browsing, to "test" the updates to see how well it handled pop-ups and malware/spyware. After the two days, I give the pop-up blocker a "thumbs up", but I ran Ad-Aware and Spybot Search & Destroy, and found about 20 "tracking cookies" total. Needless to say, I'm back to my trusty default browser of nearly three years, Opera. I never get "tracking cookies" or spyware using Opera. I'm convinced Microsoft will never make their browser totally secure! Most of the time, the only time I use IE is if a site just won't work at all in Opera, like MSN chat, and Those are really the only two sites I have problems with in Opera.

In other news, I don't think I'd live in Florida if they gave me the entire state... it is too hurricane prone, mainly because it "sticks out" from the rest of the country like a sore thumb! Also, wouldn't live in California, it is too prone to mudslides, earthquakes, wildfires, and too much traffic.
