Hmm. And who is the Head of ALL browsers at Microsoft?
It would be nice to hear his voice here, as many people are very confused by 
incompatibilities of MS IE on different platforms nowdays.
Ok, I take it "as is" - but I am (and other people) definitly interested when 
we can expect *unified* MS IE, working in the same way on all platforms?

And, BTW: where is MS IE for Linux, which was expected to arrive in Q2 2001?
Has MainSoft missed deadline?
