  Of course OmniWeb rules, MitjaPod. But is this IE for OS X? No, I believe it's the version for OS 9. And is there an OmniWeb version for OS 9? I believe not! So is this the best browser available for 'classic'? Yes, by far. It's way better than IE on X too, don't ask me why, but it is.

  On my Mac at least, 5.1.6 appears to suffer from a serious memory leak. Minus another star for Java still not working in IE.

  In initial tests, seems to render pages faster.

  Improved performance over I.E.5.1.5. on 9.2.2 (only after running Norton's Disk Doctor following installation).

  That's a review? You're reviewing IE (5.1.6) for OS 9, OmniWeb is for OS X now look sad and say D'oh! IE 5.1.6 seems faster and more stable and some sites (security wise) I couldn't get to with 5.1.3 thru 5.1.5 pop up famously now. Now if only I could get a minimium font size setting! With a 75 dpi 800x600 setting on the iMac 96 dpi makes the text to big and thin and some sites that use -1 tags in their html break up the fonts, but I whine, because I can. Outside of that it is close to being the perfect browser, although I use Netscape 7 as my daily browser, I keep IE 5 there just in case...
