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'm not gonna go into the whole IE thing, since most of us seem to agree that IE is inferior to alternative browsers. I personally have been following and using Firebird since its Pheonix .4 release.

What annoys me is that the current slate theme looks terribly like Mac OS's brushed theme, except much, much worse. I know that Aero will be replacing it, but doing such an obvious ripoff is totally unprofessional.

And if you guys took a look at the Aero demo video, notice how long it took between the opening of the folder and the actual appearance of the files? This also happened from Win2k to WinXP. If you use the two in conjunction, there is noticably more lag in XP when doing simple tasks like opening folders. Hopefully Aero will feel as fast as 2k does on the 4357930 ghz machines in 2006.
