Internet Explorer for UNIX Discontinued

"It's not certain when this happened, but it was probably quite recently, looking at posts in their newsgroup; the Wayback Machine doesn't help, but Google's cache is still the original site.

"This is obviously the last nail in the coffin of 'IE's cross-platform support'. Gecko-based browsers are now the only game in town for download-and-install free software on these two platforms."

Though we don't usually post negative articles about rival browsers, this one was too interesting to pass up.

I've had problems with float: right before. When I was working on <http://www.mozilla.org/start/1.0> I had the hardest time getting the dino head to work properly in mac and windows ie. They matched each other with their buggy behavior (The image wasn't actually floating it pushed the other divs to the left of it instead of allowing it to flow nicely underneath)

To fix it I changed something seemingly totally unrelated in the page and it magically fell into place. Can't remember exactly what I changed, but I do remember that it surprized me :)
