Actually, Firefox (Mozilla) didn’t purchase it. It says right at the top: “Neither this site nor Mozilla is connected with Microsoft.”

Josh- Mozilla might be associated with it.

The comment’s wording is a little misleading, but what it actually is saying is, “This site is not associated with Microsoft.” and, “Mozilla is not associated with Microsoft.”

it is NOT saying
“This site is note associated with Mozilla.”

Wow!

What a find. Seems to be the work of a ‘renegade Mozilla fan’.

Won’t last long. Laws in the US allow Microsoft to claim ownership of the domain if they own the brand name.

Mozilla didn’t buy it. The Whois info says it’s owned by something called Digital Data Flow. Still funny though.

if it werent for the new pc’s coming with IE already installed, IE wouldn’t be around (hello netscape). firefox is the best by far. i don’t know why IE users don’t make the switch to firefox.

but i do have one question:

fred, what were you doing venturing onto internet explorer’s site in the first place?
