I have IE 5.5, Netscape 6, and MSN Explorer.

I use all three. I use MSN mainly to check e-mail and to use MSN Messenger. I use it like how most people use Outlook or Eudora. I don't use it to surf mainly because it does NOT have the status bar at the bottom (where if you put the cursor on a link, it shows the destination). Also I guess because it's too cluttered, something Netscape 6 shares in common.

Mostly, I use IE 5.5

I agree with you about Netscape. The only thing I don't like about MSN is that you can't get rid of the search bar on the right hand side. I am looking for another way to surf the net, because I have nothing but trouble with IE. Sometimes pictures are scrambled, I get a lot of error messages saying that it can't connect. Lately I have not been able to post on DVDTALK, it tells me that my IP number is banned. I can post just fine through Netscape and MSN.

one thing I do like about MSN is that it has never crashed on me. I'd have a MSN Explorer up, and IE 5.5, and N6, and on a typical night, IE would crash twice, N6 would crash twice, and MSN 0.
