I was wondering if any of you have downloaded IE 5.5? If so, are there any noticeable differences?

I like it much better, personally.

It renders tables faster - useful for UBB-like Message Boards. It also has much better support for Java and DHTML. I've noticed that large applets load faster now. Other than that, there aren't too many differences that I can see. It just feels like it's a little faster than 5.0.

Hope that helps http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

I've been using 5.5 for several weeks now. The differences in appearance are very subtle. It seems to load faster, especially with regards to tables, java and dhtml.
Seems more stable too. Not much else seems to be different

I been using 5.5 for a few months now, and everytime I open it. The browser will freeze for about 8-10 seconds then I could use it. This also happen in outlook and it's very annoying. which did not happened in 5.0. Is anybody else having the same problem??
