    Without getting technical and involved it has to do with
    scripting, browser
    security and W3C standards again Trapper. IE/MS has always played
    its own
    game, created rules on the way, etc. Same with their browser. Some
    of IE's
    abilities are great and I wish they would catch on with other
    browsers but
    some of their functions utilize the very things that make other
    browsers
    more secure than IE.

    Personally, I think that a lot of it has to do with quietly making
    people
    want to use their product. Think about it... create a system that
    everyone
    thinks that they have to use YOUR methods and YOUR product and
    what have you
    got? A money maker giant.

    Now I won't believe it until I see it for myself but I understand
    that is
    part of what MS is working on in their new browser that probably
    won't ship
    until Longhorn comes out, security, standards compliance, W3C
    standards,
    etc. I hope so. It will mean many web designers having to learn a
    different
    way of doing things but in the long run many feel it will go far in
    propelling the industry forward.

    The sad part is that there really isn't much that the IE browser
    can do that
    other browsers cannot, if anything at all. The problem is actually in
    programmers who choose to program for IE only without regard to
    whether it
    will work in other browsers or not. It is within the web
    developers' hands
    today to eliminate the problem like what Carl mentioned but it
    means doing
    things differently and some aren't ready to do that yet.
