    (No Safari, Didn't Read) :p

    Honestly, if you're going to outright lie about your browser, you may as well lie about every other browser out there.

    Total marketing BS.

    I'm pretty sure engadget or somebody did a run through of that list a couple weeks ago busting it full of holes.

    FF 3.5 here, I love it.

    Quote: "Sure, Firefox may win in sheer number of add-ons, but many of the customizations you'd want to download for Firefox are already a part of Internet Explorer 8 – right out of the box."

    This to me just doesn't make any sense. What features does IE8 have that firefox offers with the ability to use add-ons? This is a total scam.

    Lo, no Safari. What an outright lie. It's sad to know that some computer illiterate people will buy into that.

    Haha yeah I've seen this before. It's such a joke. M$ is forever stuck in its own little world.

    There is a difference between BS and outright lies. Much of the chart are outright lies. IE is the least W3C standards-compliant browser available. The chart is also out of date because the most current release of Firefox is Firefox 3.5. Even at that, Firefox 3.0 is a better browser than IE8.

    BTW, there is a reason why Safari garners nary a mention. The Windows version of Apple's browser has become popular among Windows users who want to avoid the malware issues inherent in IE. M$ doesn't want to raise Safari's profile for fear of its gaining even more credibility on the Windows platform.
