Netscape 8.0 disables Internet Explorer
By fair means or foul
Microsoft has confirmed that installing the recenlty launched Netscape 8.0 on on your PC will stop Internet Explorer from displaying XML-files, like blog feeds.
In his blog, David Massy, a senior Microsoft program manager, said that users who install Netscape 8.0 and use IE to visit an XML file or XML file with an XSLT transformation applied, will get a blank page instead of the content they were after.
Microsoft is investigating, but in the meantime has posted a work around that involves removing the troublesome Netscape and fiddling with IE’s registry settings. ®
