Since you seem to be spending quite a lot of time exploring the web I am surprised you didn't already switch to Firefox. The only warning that comes to mind: If you are among those believing in the infallibility of Microsoft doing the best job anybody ever can do then you might be in for a surprise ... Seriously: download it, get a feel for it - and then check what extensions you might want to enhance the browser even more for you needs (my personal favourites there: Adblock, Web Developer, Mouse gestures, ... and a few more). I never ever fire up Internet Explorer unless I absolutely have to. And that's usually only when checking the layout for a page I am developing - because unfortunately enough people still use that permanent security hole that masquerades as a useful application (tm by a slashdot poster).
