One good thing about IE (yep, I found one!)- it works with pages that need IE. That's usually bad though (doh..) cos it means it's using some kind of insecure scripting or ActiveX (argh help!). Ok, there are exceptions. One other: I suppose that it's the default browser used by an awful lot of people just cos they've never considered there might be another option. No, hang on, that's a bad thing (again) - you need to make sure it looks ok in IE even if your code doesn't look good/right.
