Surely you're not advertising ...? Apr 18, 2006

Perhaps you are pointing us to the cute illustration instead, similar to the main character here:

Firefox vs. Microsoft Apr 18, 2006

IE7 = Internet Explorer 7, produced by Microsoft.

One would assume that the domain IE7.com leads to Microsoft's official website for the soon-to-be-published 7th edition of the company's browers Internet Explorer.

In fact, however, the domain is used as a landing pad by Mozilla for its own browser, Firefox, IE's harshest competitor.

Firefox has it all already Apr 18, 2006

Having visited a genuine Microsoft website about IE7, I think all the improvements over IE6 are already present in the latest version of Firefox.

Well, Apr 19, 2006

joke understood or not. Is there any reason left to use Internet Explorer???

I just can recommend Firefox.

And yes: that is sort of advertising - for a cost-free tool with great quality.

No harm intended. A nice evening to you all!! ;o))
