    IE has been updated numerous times since 5.0. I don't think it's really
    chronic bloat. eBay isn't all that bad as far as page size. I suspect a
    bug or just out of date software.

    IMHO, you ought to consider 8.1. 9.x will probably slow you down a bit
    too much, but 8.1 will allow you to update your browser (and a few other
    apps along the way). It's also a little more internet friendly.

    Actually, Apple and IBM are pretty riendly. I suspect that new HTML
    standards are what's causing the problem.

    Nope. You'll need the whole shebang. And 8.1 isn't really a whole lot
    different as far as appearance goes.

    Yep. I liked 7.6, but most apps require 8.1 or freater. It's more of a
    functionality issue than an appearance/usability issue. You won't see a
    whole lot of change.
