Internet Explorer The new version of Internet Explorer in Longhorn 4051 is version 6.05.4051.0.  Even though Longhorn is many years away (if ever!) the folks at Microsoft have realized that people want more from their browser, due to popularity of the competition, ex. Mozilla. UPDATE: Longhorn 4051 review.

um yea IE is the best browser if you want your computer hacked. What is the current number of holes in IE that allow a site you are visiting to take over your computer. 5, 6? I have used mozilla since 0.9 and there is no way I go back to IE. I only use IE to download the latest version of mozilla, or firebird on freshly installed systems. I have had to many computers comprised because of it. Also mozilla has had nearly all of those features since 1.0 how long ago, 2 1/2 years. Microsoft is playing catch up again.

As for IE only sites, if they don't render under mozilla I just don't visit them. Then agian I haven't had a problem with any site that I wanted to visit. I haven't been to every site on the web so there is lots I haven't experinced, then again I haven't had a virus in 3 years since switching away from IE.

I might have missed it but I didin't see any tabs. They are one feature I can't live without. open up 10 windows, and with a single click change which site you are on, very useful for comparing notes and info between multiple sites.
