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.

RE:*What* Popularity of Mozilla...

"Mozilla has a only a little bit more market share than IE 4. That's unfortunatly quite sad since it's so much better than current incarnations of IE are."

These september figures are probably already outdated. Actually google included gecko in its stats last summer precisely because they suddenly saw it rising quickly. It is the first time *ever* that a browser is gaining market share against Internet Explorer. Most of the web sites I know of had between 2 and 8% gecko browers in december. My company's site only has 84% IE users, I live in France where Mozilla is probably a bit more popular than in many other countries. The fact is : all alternative browsers gain market share every month, with this trend non-IE browsers may represent 30% of the installed base in one year fromnow and that's why standards-compliance is so important.
