    Safari was fine too, which (for some) is a first-party browser ;)

    How about everyone (websites) stop worrying about our browsing habits and instead focus on content and function???

    And what is a first party browser? I do not think it means what you think it means.

    Yes, there is no such thing as a "third party browser", I think what you mean by it though is a browser that does not come pre-installed into an operating system.

    Why can we install third party browsers in windows, but can't install IE in linux? I smell another anti-trust lawsuit.

    Actually, you can, but it needs to run under WINE or some such program. The really entertaining bit is that WINE will pass the WGA check, even though it has NO MS code :D

    Because we don't want to :p

    (And it might work via Wine, if WGA didn't get in the way.)

    That's news to me. When did that happen?

    Edit: Seems you're right! Maybe I'll see if it works later.. :)
