actually, if you'd have read some of his other posts, you'll find out WHY
he did this. He installed the december CTP of Vista on his laptop just
before he left for CES, and thus was "stuck" with a relatively unstable
version of IE while away from home, so he insalled Firefox because the beta
had too many problems.
All this is saying is that Firefox is better than an unstable beta of IE.
Duh. It doesn't mean he's likely to keep Firefox when he gets back home.
