IE is in fact a very good browser. I'm with you so far...

I use IE6 and I can use CUSTOM CSS on any site I am on... (I can use just about ANY css skin on any site) and I think all IE versions can do this......

Can you do this on Chrome/Safari??
This is insanity. That browser is more than a decade old. It's riddled with dozens of known, unpatched security vulnerabilities. Its CSS support is broken and incomplete.

And you're doing this so you can take advantage of something that every other modern web browser has been able to do for years?

I have a Chromebook too! My school uses chromebooks all the time. We have applications such as Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive, Google Classroom, etc. I like the Google Classroom because once the assignment appears on that app that way I can know ahead of time.

The 2 mentioned above function basically the same as Chrome so if you are used to Chrome then those will be familiar to use. Comodo Dragon is put out by the same company that is a huge supplier of SSL certificates that websites use for security so they are well known for their security.

I will give this a try. Chrome irritates me sometimes

With IE6, Microsoft is not spying on you. The rest of the world is, however.... Due to the lack of any reasonable security measures. Is also not compliant with web standards and not sorted by many websites.

I quit using Firefox because I kept getting the "404" message. I went to Chrome ,didn't like it, and ended up with Avant. Seems to do everything I want and haven't had any problems yet.

As I said before...

It's filled with known, unpatched security holes and doesn't support modern web standards (nor standards from when it was released, for that matter).

Just because you choose to be trapped in the past and reject factual reality doesn't make it "BS."

As for spying on you, I'll take a modern Firefox with Disconnect, Privacy Badger, and HTTPS Everywhere any day over some insecure junk that has been exploited over and over and has known security issues.

I can not believe that something still uses IE.... guys, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari... all of these browser are much quickly and safely then IE... IE (even IE11) still has many problems with the security with many strange toolbars from the third-party programs... I understand it's very hard to use another browser if you use IE more than 5-10 years... but just try to install another browser and use this browser 1-2 months. You will forget about IE...

As for me I use Firefox (but I want to switch to Chrome).

I know that is a popular belief, but I use IE11 almost exclusively. It does what I ask, and it doesn't worry me.
Chrome, almost never.
Firefox, daily, as I usually open my MLS there. But, then I go to IE to unlock some functionalities.
