Due to the recent Lawsuit against Microsoft,
courtesy of /., many sites that only work with IE may have to change a bit
and IE may even be changed.

This link is to IE View. What it does: Adds "View page in Internet Explorer"
links to the content and link context menu. Handy for previewing pages in
IE, loading up IE-only pages when you run across them in Mozilla, etc.

Hope this helps,
