Microsoft uses Firefox?
« on: September 28, 2007, 05:52:18 PM »
As some of you know, I have just reinstalled windows (with activation problems, but windows gave up and let me activate, go figure), and I was going to download directx, and on the page where you download the wga plugin crap on M$'s site, the download save box was that of FF, not IE... when did M$ start using FF instead of IE?

Are you using FF? or IE? I am willing to wager they have a page designed for users of firefox that shows its download dialog.

you know, that may be it, and yes, I am using FF, who still uses IE? If you look at the screen shot, it was taken in FF.

Yes they have a dedicated FF page for those of us that don't use the (imo, inferior) MS browser to download more of their mind controlling software :)
