Google Knocks IE

Google has apparently learned a thing or two about world domination from Microsoft. The latest example? Aggressive moves to convince users to move to Firefox or Chrome.

Here's how the scheme works: Google sends out a browser alert claiming that Gmail runs faster on up-to-date browsers, then offers links to Firefox and Chrome only. I got a bunch of similar messages from Hotmail, even though I'm on the latest rev of Firefox. If I remember right, it wanted me to upgrade to the latest IE, Firefox and maybe even Safari.

Do you use IE? What are the advantages? Thoughts welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
