IE 6.0 : The browser for more sophisticated, computer-savvy users?

Hey, compared to MSN Explorer, MSIE seems to be engineered for Stephen Hawking, at the very least... Maybe I'm just isolated because I work with engineers and fairly sophisticated end users, but how stupid can people possibly be and still be able to find the "power on" switch?!

MSN Explorer is simply an attempt to capture some of the AOL market. Bundle Hotmail, MSN Messenger and all the bells and whistles into a cute cuddly package and stick a pretty butterfly logo on it.

I'm still holding out hope for Mozilla.

I just downloaded Mozilla M18 today, and I've had fun with it. It's pretty good at rendering almost everything correctly, it's still got its drawbacks, but I wouldn't die if I had to use it constantly. :)

However, right when I was going to post this, Moz started acting up, like I had the Alt key held down or something....B would take me back a page, etc. D'oh. :)

I have some great ideas for Microsoft. Like release "IE6 Dumbass Version" and "IE6 Productivity Version". Or maybe simply make the right-click menu pop out immediately after pressing down on the mouse, and take out ALL pointless animations. And don't make smooth scrolling on be the default!!

Heh. IE6 Dumbass Version. You realize of course, that means someone would come out with a book entitled Internet Explorer Dumbass Version for Dummies.
