Hm... the fact that the average user probably doesn't even realise
there are browsers out there besides IE means nothing, I suppose. And
I saw from reading it (this morning) that there are two basic replies
to any question:

a) we're considering it, but can't say for sure - after all, it might
break something on some obscure site

Haha.  Apparently, Internet Explorer on Windows XP Service Pack 2 will
break one of our internal web applications (which uses MIME content
type, not extensions, to provide application information.
Fortunately, we don't use Internet Explorer, but it's still quite a
paradigm shift.  I wonder if they break down and release a "fix" in a
week's time.

Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
