Stay with 5.5 6 has to have the java virtual machine turned on to see java. It is not hard to do but, it is stupid.

IE6 is mostly cosmetic changes. I run IE 6 at work and IE 5.5 at home. Really not that musch of a cosmetic difference. Ato a review of IE 6:
As far as new features for developers go, the list begins with full support for CSS and DOM Level 1, support for Microsoft XML 3.0, enhanced SMIL 2.0 multimedia support, content-restricted IFrames, support for mouse wheel events, easier integration of server and client side code via Microsoft .NET, automatic ellipses for text overflow, and install-on-demand Java VM support.

What does that mean for you? Right now, not much. Down the road it means it will tie in with the MS .Net stratagy. Av.

I never update IE until I _need_ to, and I usually end up with a more stable version because of it. I've been running IE 4.01 SP2 at home for a long time now because it doesn't give me any problems. A friend of mine just installed IE 6 today and is getting script errors just trying to browse his directory tree...

IE 6 handles javascript a lot better than 5.5. I finally got fed up with Netscape locking up and grudgingly used IE 5.5 but was frustrated by all the javascript errors. IE has mostly eliminated the problem.
