But the AppDb Howto *still* recommends WineTools and IEs4Linux, and 
*still* doesn't document a working method for installing IE.

Can someone *please* update the Howto? An AppDb with incorrect 
instructions is doing more harm than good.

I must admit that I've never really understood what's so great about the 
builtin IE. If I just want to browse the net, I'm using my native Mozilla
