NS 4.x (4.81) doesn't work on many sites.
NS 6.x was junk
NS 7.0 was junk
NS 7.01a is okay.

Firefox is great.

I use IE only when I have to (SUS admin, WindowsUpdate,OfficeUpdate)

I still use NS 4.81 a lot.  Images turned off.  But FireFox is awesome.
Almost all sites I need work on it.  It's very quick, and has a lot
of privacy options such as popup blocking, blocking Java & Javascript
from doing certain functions like hiding the window., ability to
block images from sites (ad sites)

Plus it's built with viruses in mind.  You have to save something off
prior to executing it (java/jscript/.exe/.scr) so that your antivirus
can go ahead and block it.   In many cases, IE will run the script and
THEN place it in cache from memory.   Sure, your AV catches the file -
but it's too late - it's already running.   FRIENDCARD is a great example
of this.

If you're talking as an individual, download either FireFox or Mozilla and
give it a shot.  Unless you have the (common) GDI issue with your video
card,
you'll probably love these browsers.

If you're talking a corporation then look at eSafe which can block this at
a http level.  Once the hackers figure out they need to be using HTTPS, we
are screwed.  None of the security products work over HTTPS and you can sign
your own site.  All of my users would click OK on the IE trust message..
