Away from using Internet Explorer as my browser. Switching to Firefox has been completely painless. I highly recommend it. Web pages load much, much faster, and there is unparalleled control over blocking pop-up windows and nuking animated ads. Plus Firefox is an honestly written application that does not tinker around with the entire freakin' operating system when it is installed or when it is run, resulting in a better running machine without all the resource leaks, odd behaviors, etc. Also, it fixes the horrific problems I was having with the blogger edit box spending 40% of its time writing the "recover post" file thereby making it almost impossible to use.
When it installs, it copies all of your Explorer settings and bookmarks, so you are off to the races immediately.
