Oh dear, oh dear. There actually is a software "product" out there
(an ActiveX control) called Internet Exploder, which means that if you
just want to be sarcastic about Microsoft's browser, it's best to
choose another sneer.

If you want to see what Internet Exploder does (the real one), it's
apparently installed on the Microsoft hate site, just a
bit past their entrance tunnel. I say apparently, because I haven't
actually visited that page with an ActiveX capable browser. I'd be
interested in hearing any reports from people who have. But, if
you're going to try it, then you might want to be sure that no one
else will mind if the machine you're running it on goes down. And
back up all the disks on that machine before hand. And the file
servers to which it has access. And maybe firewall it off from
anything with live data that you care about... just to be on the safe
