Enhanced IE compatibility? Is this a joke? The reason Firefox exists is to get away from non-standard web development. This is malware.

completly agree. As a webdesigner, i would love to see a perfect IE6 portage on OSX. Not to browse of course, but to work... Some peoples surely use it to connect on "IE only" website too. Don't flame this software, just understand the purpose ;)

Now come on righteous people. As a web developer myself (on mac of course), I have to make many concessions, and "inroads" myself, to insure that my sites are viewed properly on ALL browsers. The sad fact is, Wintel (and more importantly IE) make up greater than 97% of my traffic, so what good is it to wait for the Wintel and IE world to bend to my will? I will make my code as flawless as possible, when ever possible, but at times, a tag or two must be tweaked to ensure proper display on IE. I use nearly every browser at my disposal to research my sites integrity, and one that claims increased compatibility with IE (like Madfox) will become another tool like all the rest. It's not as though I'm going to my banking with it, but it doesn't hurt to give it a whirl.

It's always good to follow the standards, and good to have more options. There's a test "Acid 2" of some sought-after modern features (and some error handling) at http://www.webstandards.org/act/acid2/test.html iCab version 3 has just recently become available in beta. I believe it passes the Acid 2 test. It's definately another browser to watch. Useful feedback to the developer might be welcome too. I've tried the OS X version and like it. What's amzzing is thaat there is also aan OS 9 version. I never thought I'd see a moderm browser come to OS 9. Time to dust off some old boxes. I think all users that encounter problems with sites due to the use of IE only broken/nonstandard behavior, should complain to the webmasters. Forcing people to use IE is really bad, especially for Windows users hit with some many exploits. If someone could post links to a couple of sites that work in Madfox but not Safari, or Firefox, I'll give them a try in iCab.

I'll say it again. You can stay on the moral highground by sticking to your standards. But until those site developers change, you're locked out of those web sites. You can elect to stay away, but for many in parts of the world, that is just not practical. The choice comes down to Madfox/Mac or a Wintel PC. So to support the Mac path and let the dark side see the light, this development should be supported! At least it gets people off Windows and Internet Explorer!

Good lord, this is backwards thinking. Firefox is made to be STANDARDS-COMPLIANT, dumbing it down to suit IE goes against everyone's best interests.

No offense intended to the dev, but the Mac community does not need this. Stop this nonsense now! FF needs to flourish AS FF, not some IE suck-up. The world needs FF to be success, this is a resource distraction. Do NOT download this.

The very idea of perverting good code so that it will be compatible with IE is a complete and utter travesty.

Ohhh why oh why? Why must lame-o developers continue to extend MS poor browser compatibilty/coding practices. This "version" of FF is merely bending backwards for "compatibilty" reasons and only extending MS proverbial dragging of the feet on web standards. just Say NO!

It's perfectly reasonable and definitely not malware!!! Madfox has modified codes that supports many of the Asian web sites that persist to use those crappy MSFT web development tools. In order for increase Mac acceptance and penetration in those regions, Madfox's development should be supported by the rest of the Mac community. Cursing it is most inconsiderate and counter productive.
