Not to mention the new IE download is what, 60+ MB?  Sorry, hellz no.

I use Opera 6 web browser  ->
Very small (~1 MB), very fast, very nice (built-in email, news, ICQ).
Compatible with 98% of the web sites I've been to (which is a lot)
including Flash sites and Java is mostly OK.

And, you can configure it to tell web servers its any of a number of
different web browsers (stealth mode:)

It is NOT free (or rather, the free version has ads in the toolbar) but
at USD $40 its very cheap and if you're the immoral type its very easy
to find a serial number for it on the web.
