Yet only a few months later he wrote this:
"Internet Explorer doesn't get a lot of respect, but then that mistreatment
is deserved given its legendary security problems. That said, IE 7, the
version included in Windows Vista, is coming along nicely and will likely
win over a lot of people who were previously testing the Firefox waters.

conclusions based on early designs which will change later.
