I saw Microsoft released IE 5.0 wednesday to the general public. I currently have IE 4.0.   IS IE 5.0 worth the trouble of downloading. What enhancements, if any does IE 5.0 have?

In my experience the answer to this one is simple :

EVERY time Microsoft brings out a "new one" they use idiots like us to beta test it for them ie it is usually full of bugs and can cause you no end of headaches !

The thing to do is let others take the risk for a month or two and then download IE 5.01 when MS have got the big bugs out...

IE5 has not been released.  IE5 Beta has.  This means that IE5 WILL be buggy and Microsoft is saying as much by calling it a BETA.  What they're also saying is that if you want to see what IE5 will be like and get access to all the new bells and whistles (which, in most cases, will probably be improved ways to "dummy-proof" it - so that the average home user who hasn't figured out you don't have to type in "http://" before entering a URL thinks its "easier to use").

I prefer Netscape anyway... but unless you have the time and want to see what IE5 will be like... and want to help microsoft work out the bugs, I'd say stay away from it.
