Should Microsoft rebrand Internet Explorer?

I think it is fair to say that most people who fancy themselves even somewhat tech-savvy do not have a very high opinion if IE. Much of this is based more on bad memories than recent experience, but whether the dislike is valid or not, most people I know use a different browser than IE unless they are forced to by their work. Would a name change help IE shed it’s lackluster image and help Microsoft regain browser market share?

No, it's far too late for that. I think the IE name would just follow whatever browser name Microsoft picked. The folks who dislike IE have long since moved to Chrome, Firefox or other browsers.
