    Seems like I've seen stuff on this before but I can't find it. I bought a used computer to send to my sister, who is a very light, and very beginner, user, and always will be (she is nearly eighty). It now has IE 5.0 on it. I'm wondering if there will be any SIGNIFICANT advantage to her for me to download 5.5 and internet tools? Thanks, grandpaw

    IE5 does have some security holes that you ought to patch, though. Check Windows Update.

    Am I the only happy user of IE6? =/
