The Micro$oft homepage today says:



"You'll never find it with old Firefox. So get rid of it, or get lost. ... Ditch the web browser you're using. ... Download Microsoft's best ever browser ... Use the clues and your brilliance ..." -- does this strike anyone else as ridiculously gimmicky and cheap?

"It's not as stupid as it sounds." Ha.

The really amusing thing is that it didn't ever have a message it displayed for "Opera", it just said "browser". :-)

(Don't know why I put quotes around Opera.)

"Desperate" also springs to mind.

I'll be so happy if it turns out the need to make this IE-only resulted in an exploitable security hole. "You'll never find it with any standards-compliant browser!"

It really kills me that there's some amazing stuff coming out of Microsoft Live Labs lately, and then we go and pull crap stunts like this. Meh.
