Actually I wonder if mentioning IE on a site for potential converts, is such a bad idea.

The amount of times I have described Firefox as a "web browser" only to be met by blank stares, is astonishing. To get the blank look to go away I usually say a different "Internet Explorer" and they all go aaaaaah.

Now, while that makes me want to get medieval on them, the fact remains that for a vast percentage of the potential user base out there, the Internet is "Internet Explorer", NOT "Microsoft Internet Explorer".

my 2 euros worth.
