Don't think of adding Internyet Exploder as an end in itself.  The truth 
is far too many sloppy or lazy programmers build in dependencies on 
MSIE, and will not install without it.  So usually I'm installing it 
just to try to get past that issue.

Maybe someday the Wine programmers will be able to craft a "dummy" MSIE 
module, which will forward it's web page needs to your own preferred 
browser.  I suspect it will have to be a seperate plug-in, as it would 
probably prevent you from installing a *real* MSIE if you still wanted to.
