Well it's finally happened. Again. Just when you thought your computer was up to date with Internet Explorer 4.0, corporate giant, Microsoft released their latest version in the Internet Explorer showcase. Some say the browser works faster to save you time. "It's never been easier to get online, find the information you need, and just do stuff faster" claims Microsoft.

But is it really worth the hassle? Absolutely. Those who know me know that I am a die-hard Netscape fan. But Netscape has yet to match IE5's highly customizable interface. Just about everything can be customized to fit your needs: toolbars, e-mail options, colors, security, even an online radio. So if you didn't get your copy of Internet Explorer 5 with Windows 98, then it's time to click the link above. Trust me, it's worth the hassle. Microsoft did it right this time.
