Internet Explorer The new version of Internet Explorer in Longhorn 4051 is version 6.05.4051.0.  Even though Longhorn is many years away (if ever!) the folks at Microsoft have realized that people want more from their browser, due to popularity of the competition, ex. Mozilla. UPDATE: Longhorn 4051 review.

IE is the best web browser there is, and if Microsoft has its, way will ever be.

Actually, Konqueror on Linux and Safari on Mac OS X are both superior to IE.

On Windows, I much prefer Mozilla, which is natively skinnable, already blocks pop-ups and has tabs. It does not benefit from the pre-load trick like IE does, but the three extra seconds are well worth the wait.

And despite your marketing sales pitch, MS does not dominate console games. Please check numbers of Xbox sold vs. PS2s...(not to start a console flame war here, I have both).

It also doesn't dominate the PDA and Home Media markets. As far as the processor market is concerned, MS will have to be very careful if it doesn't want another anti-trust trial on its hands.
