Site look funky? Your browser is so old standards-based layouts and styling confuse it. Consider updating. Good options include: Mozilla (Linux, Mac, Windows), Mozilla Firefox (Linux, Mac, Windows), Netscape v7 or higher (Linux, Mac, Windows), Opera v7 or higher (Linux, Mac, Windows), Galeon (Linux), Konqueror (Linux), Apple Safari (Mac), Mozilla Camino (Mac), Microsoft Internet Explorer v5 or higher (Mac), Microsoft Internet Explorer v6 or higher (Windows). All are free. Because of security concerns I personally avoid Internet Explorer. It may or may not be more buggy than its competitors, but its prominence and Microsoft's notoriety make it the most frequent target of malicious crackers.
