IE supports without any manupulation , many languages across the world. For example there is one language "TELUGU" from southern part of india. we have a local news paper on www.eenadu.net
if we try thro firefox, normally, we can see some gibberish only. but see the same in IE, the script is sown properly well. perhaps, that original script might itself look like gibberish to unacquainted people. that way IE helps many languages.
PS: Now the FF has enabled the TELUGU script. there are many languages supported by IE. whether all those are also supported by FF is to be seen.
I've used many browsers over the years (more than I can remember).
Currently i have three installed. One i use most of the time is still Chrome. yes it's clunky, buggy and does not work with some sites, but it is fast and i am a speed demon. one that is slightly slower but very reliable and works on everything is FireFox. IE is still on my machine because I don't find time to remove it. It is one of the useless things I like to get rid of, like MS Messenger.
MS and browser war nearly killed Mozilla but I am still thankful to MS because this is what created better browsers and - made them free of charge. How many of you remember walking into a computer store, picking browser from the software shelf and paying for it?
this is a bit of an old thread, but i'm not the first this year to exhume it....
in addition to Firefox, i also occasionally use Lynx (a text based browser), because Lynx can use protocols like gopher and wais that are no longer in firefox. interestingly, gopher has been "rediscovered" in the last 2 years, and there's still a lot of content out there.
