Maybe for you, but for me IE 5 crashes WAY more than Netscape. It even takes down netscape with it. When I click file save as explorer.exe freezes and I have to end task it. When I do, the program that I was trying to save with also goes down.

When I go into windows\system I get javascript errors (Active desktop and web view are turned off). I cannot left or right click on a file. I can't copy a file in or out of that directory via windows (I can through dos) because of this.

Gotta love that stable, integrated browser.

Of course, I'm the only one I know with these problems.
