I am not so much against Microsoft IE as I would be agaisnt supporting any
one particular browser. If you support the standards from the W3C for
example, then any standards-compliant browser will be able to use your
application, instead of just one browser and version.

But if you wish to target only the most popular browser, then targeting IE
would make sense, but it will still leave quite a few people in the dark.

I understand now that it is not an applet. I was not able to run it, so I
only took a guess. I was using Windows 98 at the time, but my browser was
Mozilla Firebird.
