Upgrading internet explorer?

Right now, I'm using IE6. And, yes, I've heard it's insecure, and I also heard that IE8 was just released to manufacturers 2 days ago. So, I have three options. Should I:

Upgrade to Internet Explorer 8? (is it stable enough yet, and compatible with everything?)

Upgrade to Internet Explorer 7? (I heard many use it), or

Keep Internet Explorer 6?

    Well, it's for XP SP3, Vista SP1, and Home Server '08(whatever that is). Yes, IE8 is stable. IE8 is, unlike the other IE's made after the internet was dangerous, secure. IE8 is fast,safe, and good. And i have always hated IE and said it was crap.

    Whatever you do, upgrade to IE8!!! All the other IE's are easy to hack. If your OS isn't one of these, then use Firefox(http://www.firefox.com)/ or Chrome(http://www.google.com/chrome) because they're better than IEs.

    Try IE 7 first. Your computer may be too old for IE 8 if you still have IE6.

    First, I don’t recommend internet explorer it’s really unsafe and slow. I would strongly recommend Firefox but if you can’t get it you should get internet explorer 7 and use it until the next version comes out which is soon.

    IE8 is indistinguishable from IE7. They're both garbage. Like he said...use Firefox.

    Don't use either, use Firefox, Google Chrome, or Opera.

    They are far more secure and far faster then IE.

    enhancements are almost continuously loose. particularly if it prompts you. that is a short procedure which could in user-friendly words take moments and is amazingly had to the keeping this technique's operation in suitable structure. i'd recommend it.
