#40 No, it's true. IE is NOT THAT integral.

Yes, there are some IE parts that the OS uses, BUT, there is still a separate IEXPLORER.EXE, and a bunch of DLLs that IE uses apart from the OS. Using nothing but switches available in Explorer's prefs dialog, and TWEAKUI (a Control Panel plugin WRITTEN BY MS employees, and distributed on the Win98 CD! [but not 98SE, somone wised up it made them look bad]) IE is extremely removed from my day-to day OS routines, even with Web View enabled. IE now takes about 6 to 7 seconds to load on my machine. Mozilla only take 10-11.

You have been misled by the MS corporate propaganda. The technical realities, if you actually do a little exploring on your own, are quite different.
