    It's no secret that Microsoft and Mac are sworn enemies, but I couldn't help but share how awful IE made our beloved WDF look. This is why Mac users don't use IE, if only the rest of the world were so fortunate!

    IE on Mac OS is nothing like IE on Windows (meaning it's worse than the already bad IE for Windows). Even Microsoft stopped supporting it on the Mac.

    Im pretty sure Microsoft still supports IE6 for mac and i would think that IE 7 will also be compatible..
    I know they have completly stopped support for IE5..which is the only options on some older OS.
    IE6 seems pretty stable though..

    There is no IE6 for the Mac and there won't ever be.

    ok.. you must be right..
    it has to be 5.2 im thinking of which is alot better than V5..
    whatever version is compatible with OSX 10..
    the computers in the college lab have it and it is alot better than V5 but still not as good as the PC version..

    I would think that move is a big mistake on part of Microsoft to stop supporting IE forever on macs.I guess they really do hate non-Microsoft people..:ermm:

    Without folllowing the link I can tell you filburt1 is accurate. I think I have opened IE twice since I've had my computer (about six months)... the rendering is so awful, it's practically laughable. So, I thought I'd share
