Internet & Networking We've been talking about the browser ballot screen for a while now, which led to some obvious questions we couldn't answer. As it turns out (and I completely missed this), Microsoft actually posted a fairly detailed description of its proposal [.doc] on its website last Friday. It details everything from what it means not to have Internet Explorer installed to what the ballot screen will look like.

To this day, I can never understand the Poms who spell "flour" with a u. How unnecessary. (With things like "lighted" instead of lit, and words like "gotten" frequently used, putting a full stop after Mr, Mrs, Ms, etc - American English is hardly more efficient).

Without the "u", the word flour would read as the same pronunciation as floor, rhymes with door.

AFAIK, in countries where English is the first language, British spelling conventions are followed more often than American spelling.
