    We have all seen the chain emails in the past in which the claim bill gates will send the senders and recievers of the letter $$ just for using IE.
    Since Safari's release I recieved it at least 10 times. Give up you micrshaft wussies theirs a new sheriff in town.

    bizarre

    I don't quite understand microsoft's logic here. If it's true, then they just look like their running scared. My solution to Microsoft?make a better mac browser.

    I dislike microsoft, but I will use whichever browser I think is the best. Now, it's Safari by a hair over Chimera.

    i'm not even going to dignify these urban legends with an in-depth explanation of how they're technically impossible and how they've been circulating the internet since it's inception... just know they're not true and don't forward them on :) or those stupid "forward these for a funny movie to appear" or any other chain letters... some people, no matter how many they pass on, never learn. my mother-in-law was actually a bit offended when i told her to stop, but it clears up my inbox a bit :)

    There is work to be done on IE, but overall it is the most consistent in rendering among the browsers available for Mac. The Mozilla browsers come in close behind, and then a bit further back is Safari, but I'm not going to come down on Safari because it is still a beta. Safari is very promising indeed. Until it gets a little more work done on it, I will have to stick to Internet Explorer, even if it is a Microsoft product.
