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.

...I take it he must feel my posts are a threat to MS's hegemony. I'm both flattered and annoyed. At least it shows that my views are known enough that I don't have to report him myself.

To stay on-topic, it's not that IE is a bad browser, but just that other browsers offer more functionality and are standards-compliant. The biggest effort is to educate web site providers - especially government ones - to make sure that their content is accessible by all modern browsers, not just IE.

It's not that hard - just stay within standards and test your site with IE, Mozilla, Opera and Safari/Konqueror, and you've pretty much got everything covered.
