    Heh! I've been using Firefox (mainly) for years now and have only ever
    started IE *extremely* grudgingly once or twice for things that insist on
    it - like Windows Update.

    Thanks for that though, and I hope you're well. :)

    When was MSIE place but following the leader?

    One of Ms Windows complete off out into left field. Metro on the desktop is
    another.

  5. ... you know you can cheat by changing the ID string ? ... sometimes non IE
    browsers begin to miraculously work on particular sites when that browser lies
    about what it is. :) :)

    Now there's just the ethical question of ... am I really using IE if I say I
    am ?

    :)

    Heh! I've heard that it's possible to do that before but, as a Windows user
    I have IE already there (having never bothered about uninstalling it) so
    it's not that big a deal to use it when I have to. Bloody annoying though,
    companies trying to tie you in to a certain platform - and doing deals with
    other companies to do the same.

    Cheers,
