The reason why they aren't releasing any more version of IE is because they are totally embeding it into windows, which will have the opposite effect of what you are predicting. The windows UI and the internet browser are going to become completely infused. People will no longer use "IE" to browse the web, they will just use windows. Its going to suck for the browser market, if Firefox wants to have any hope of surviving Longhorn, it needs to pick up its market share now and keep the loyal fans. That, or it will have to take windows to court.

IE isn't going to become old and outdated, windows isn't abonding thier browser technology, they aren't stupid, you don't become the compony they are by making stupid buisness moves, you leave that to IBM.

The one thing i hate most about IE is vbscript. I think there need to be more browsers that support it, it would be a good way to clench a bit of the market. I am sure there are other IE only things but i know of a few sites which use vbscript which means i cant visit them. I am not sure why VBscript is in use but it is a royal PITA, and a major security risk but people insist on it GARRRR.
Geko based browsers for ever

Firefox is slick. I really like it. I would use it on my mac to but it loads really slow. And when I am in windows every now and than I use it there to. I can't wait till the finish working the last few bugs out of it and get to 1.0. Although I wish they would stop changing the name at each stage.


Firefox has always been my first option for web browsing. But it keep slowing down due to my low memory of my computer. So Opera is definitely the second choice for browsing the net. Safari is also pretty good, especially for its fast loading time.
