    What if I use IE Tab in Firefox? ;)
  3. I would try user agent switcher first thing, but who knows, maybe it doesn't work. In any case, there's no way I'm signing up for twitter, so forget about it.

    Nah, I think more efficient way would be to bribe some editors of tech sites to write VERY positive reviews of IE8. Still, I don't think that's efficient enough :p

    LOL I opened the page using Google Chrome and it said "You'll never find it using tarnished Chrome!"

    But I guess now that they're actually donating meals for every IE download (yeah, 8 meals per download to the Feeding America network), this isn't too far up their alley. ;)

    The ongoing EU fiasco will just strengthen their resolve to follow through with this kind of marketing campaign.

    I respect the balls that Microsoft is showing in the face of all these antitrust lawsuits, and I could use an extra $10K, so I'm game.

    Is this going on in the EU by any chance?

    This may be more of a "kiss our a**es" than anything else.

    Well.. I'm all for winning $10,000 like the next guy... but c'mon guys, there's only so many times that I'll stick up for you with this kind of **** tactic. We get it, you want to win the browser war... now develop an actual dominant browser.
