Internet Explorer The internet has been abuzz the entire weekend about Microsoft supposedly forcing Internet Explorer 8 to be the default browser once you upgraded to it. Users reported that upon installing IE8, Microsoft's latest browser was automatically made the default one, without a notification. However, as it turns out, it's all been a bit overhyped.

I downloaded & installed the recent Vista updates, which included Microsoft Internet Explorer 8. I was never even presented with a dialog box to choose settings, etc., and my Firefox 3.0.10 browser keeps opening as my default browser just like always. I will say that I only use IE when I absolutely have to, which is mostly when dealing directly with Microsoft.
