Just hours after the release of version 5.2.1 of MS Internet Explorer
for MacOS X I had the update on my desktop. Today I found it there and realized that I had not run it yet for a very simple reason, I've been using Mozilla
as my primary browser.
With plenty of Ram available, I'm actually running both, but I found myself clicking on the "M" icon much more frequently that the "E" one. I got used to tabbed browsing, to the multiple links bookmarks, to the direct link to google in the address field and to a somehow faster rendering of pages. Very soon I could swicth the default browser settings of my system, and for the second time of my life I will have changed my default browser (I switched from Netscape 4 to Explorer 4 sometime at the end of the last century).
The main reason for my switch will be a bunch of very simple new features, something that has been totally missing from IE for a long time.
