    Isn't this against the whole court thingy about not allowing Netscape install and so?
    It's in plain violation in freedom of choice...
    They are forcing you to download and install IE5+ instead of your choice, Opera....

    Those BASTARDS!

    I believe there is a way to control how your browser
    identifies itself to queries from a web page.
    I was reading about it the other day, but can't
    remember where.

    Aha! here's the link

    So you can tell it to say " yeah, I am Internet Explorer."
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    You thinks that ones funny. I've posted this before. But, this is what you get from MS when you go to the windows update site with Linux and Galeon browser. Just a big ole' blank with a line in the page. Not even a warning. Heh, heh, heh.
