Internet Explorer - the worst browser one should have.

Today I realized that Internet Explorer is the worst internet browser that one should have. It gave me pain in xxx while trying to figure out an issue with  the compression. Here is what schroepl.net says

Internet Explorer version 4.0 and up

This browser uses either HTTP/1.0 or HTTP/1.1, depending upon the settings in the internet options. It is sending the header Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate - but only if using HTTP/1.1.

Processing compressed content works if the browser has requested compressed content; otherwise it ignores the HTTP header Content-Encoding: gzip although it would be able to decompress the content.

Which is really stupid. Internet Explorer or those who programmed it just presumed that with HTTP/1.0 will not use compression. I hate internet explorer.. please any one still using internet explorer please please switch to Firefox.
