Lockergnome: Why You Should Dump Internet Explorer

Chris Pirillo wrote in to tell us about a new article on Lockergnome entitled Why You Should Dump Internet Explorer: "The time has come to dump Internet Explorer.

I'm actually an MCSE and I happen to like quite a few of Microsoft's products.

There is one big issue I have with GTK Firefox on linux. When complicated pages are loading the Firefox UI seems to freeze-up until the page loads. It would be nice if I could continue to switch tabs while the large page loads. Is this a threading problem with the UI native widgets in GTK or is it a Firefox problem. Anyone else find this annoying or see this on Windows or Linux?
