Internet Explorer is notorious for scripting errors on competitor sites such as Google Maps, Yahoo Mail and similar errors in Web applications. Version 6 of Internet Explorer has reportedly corrected these problem, but display errors are still common on some sites such as Google. Microsoft develops its browser independently of the Web page standards committee and will likely correct new errors as it detects them.

When working on websites that use the functionality of Web applications, always use up-to-date software. The protocols and methods used for scripting and other Web-based services are constantly evolving, and websites that use newer commands and protocols may not work properly on older Web browsers. Similarly, some companies are slow to implement changes in the standard, including Microsoft, and create situations where their browser is incompatible for an entire version of the standards. In situations concerning an identified problem between the application scripts and browsers, you may need to install a different browser such as Mozilla Firefox.
