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.

The use of the 'ize' instead of 'ise' is the spelling used by the Oxford English Dictionary and also used in academic publications that are published in the Oxford University Press.

So? Many Britons do not follow the OED. I do not, and I find being told that my use of language is incorrect by a book as bloody cheeky. It is altogether too easy to adjust words and publish a dictionary. see: Webster and Color.
