You're right, ofcourse.

But, not everyone wants to use mozilla. There are valid reasons to stick with IE you know. Look and feel woes, speed, the few remaining site incompatibilities, installation and configuration problems... And those are just the obvious noes. Mozilla is not perfect. For most people mozilla is not even demonstrably better than IE.

I suggested IE because that's what the post was about. I didn't think it through. I'll make sure to point people at mozilla first next time, and only at IE if that fails.
