Internet Explorer 1.5.3 for Mac OS X

Yes, it’s out, and yes I’ve downloaded it from Version Tracker (look to the left for the link) and installed it, which has served to remind me why I like Mozilla so much better.

Once I installed I.E. I discovered that it had, without my consent, changed my Internet Preferences, switching my Default Browser setting from Mozilla to I.E., and it also changed my Home page setting, from a custom page on my drive, to MSN. That’s rude, nasty and typical of Microsoft. It is not acceptable to change a user’s settings or preferences without asking first.
