Neat! Bumped into something interesting about that blog! Not suprising just interesting...
My linux box is crunching source right now, so I was using my M$ Winders machine to browse this forum. I had not read the blog linked in the above post yet, so diceded I would. Well being that I quite dislike IE, but sometimes have to have true IE capability in my work, I use Maxthon, which uses the IE engine.
When I went to read the blog, it loaded the page perfectly fine, then suddenly poped an error dialog indicating that IE could not display the page and the operation was aborted. Even though the page was right in front of me but the error dialog took focus so I could not scroll or anything. Upon closing the dialog it kindly cleared the page and displayed the "Page Not Found" dialog in the browser! Same thing with IE 6.
Loaded the page with firefox, no problem at all. Well I know M$ trys to use every advantage possible, even unethical ones, but do you suppose they even put keyword triggers in the IE engine as far back as v6? I though that was limited to AOL coding in such a way to prevent you from viewing pages that spoke negatively about the company. LOL
