Actually, Internet Explorer 4.0 was available for UNIX (Solaris and HP-UX).
But Microsoft discontinued them.

I wonder why...

I've got a buddy who can run IE 6 on Crossover office on his SuSE-fied Stinkpad quite nicely. Crashes just like the windows version, except it doesn't drag the entire machine down wth it when it goes.

Even on windows IE sucks. And on top of that it makes you reboot.

I'll take my choices:
Mozilla, Netscape, Opera, Konqueror, Galeon....

But why do such a thing? Mozilla is so much far superior that IE. Even Apple is not using IE anymore. Why IE? Just because it loads faster than anything else under Windows. That's because it is integrated in the environment. Actually go to nba.com or another heavy load web page and compare the load time under IE and then under Mozilla. Yup!! Mozilla beats IE by far.

Just my opinion,

That is definitely true.
But I used Mozilla as an example just because it has more features like mail, composer and address book. With firebird you would have to download thunderbird or other email software to complement it. Also I have found that the browser preferences lacks controll over the tabs settings and other of the nicer features in Mozilla.
But still Firebird is a very nice browser indeed. Lets hope they will keep up the good work.

Is Firebird faster than Opera? I use Opera and it flies like a rocket even on heavy load sites.
