I'll come out and say it. I like Internet Explorer. It's the most compatible web browser out there, it's fast and pretty easy to use. But one of my own criticisms of IE is the fact that there's no support for tabbed browsing like there is in Mozilla or Opera. One of our friends from across the Pacific has addressed this concern with his program called MyIE2. In addition to tabbed browsing for IE, there are a whole host of other options available for your purusal and customization.
The current version is 0.45 build 1200. It's only about 600 kb to download and you can pull it from MajorGeeks
. So far I've suffered from none of Opera's page incompatibilities and Mozilla's instability. If you're an IE junkie but want tab support, give this program a shot.
