You will never get another browser that works the same way as Internet Explorer for Windows. Even IE for Mac works differently - so that shows even Microsoft can't do that.
let's see what bosworth and beda come up with over at google..
Would be interesting to see. If it was a browser it will not work like IE. Unless Microsoft opens up it's ActiveX, DirectX, Windows etc standards - so non-Microsoft software can work in the same way (even on non-Windows systems) - not going to happen though.
