I have to agree with kingfox, mouse gestures in The Lizard rock my world. Between that and tabbed browsing, I think I'm off the IE thing for good...

Hell yeah. I keep on hinting that we should make it the default browser on new configs.

Oh yeah...

All it needs now is a LJ client that doesn't SUCK.

That's probably a bad idea. There are things that expect the Microsoft browser to be the system default, and things that embed the IE control.

Even when Communicator was our "default browser", it wasn't the default browser on the configs.

Now, when we say ``default browser'', are we talking default for opening HTML files, or default for http: requests?

both... I know you can configure the OS to deal with http:// URLs and opening HTML files from a local filesystem seperately, but why would you want to? I think that would be confusing to end users.

You do realize that we are having a debate about drewuniversity acadtech support standards in LJ, don't you? :-)

Oh yeah, I fully accept that. :-)

I was just wondering if setting IE as the default to open HTML and Mozilla as the default http: protocol handler would alieviate the problems with setting something other than IE as the ``default browser'', that's all.
