    Google's really sticking it to M$

    I just logged into google using IE and saw a huge banner at the top advocating Firefox...because it's safer. Only EVERYONE uses google. check out this banner though. I attatched it.

    Has anyone else seen this?

    I'm using the same IE version, don't get it either. Perhaps they removed it?

    Could be IE6 lacks the new features that IE7 come with for security, or your settings are allowing the banner to appear? but as others are using IE6 and not seeing it, it could have been a blip, wasn't google and Bill having a spat at one point...

    Man, I'm surprised that I'm the only one whom doesn't seem to overwhelmingly use Google. While Google generally gives me a bit more hits, I seem to have much more accurate results with Yahoo these days. It's been that way for me since....2004 I think.

    Hey, If I knew of a way to get MS policy management working with Firefox I would use it exclusively.
