IetabI'm a fan of IEView and FirefoxView, two Firefox extensions that let me Right-click in Firefox and View in IE or Right-click in IE and click View in Firefox. They are very complimentary and have served me well.

Today both MikeG and Lifehacker pointed me to this stunning gem: Internet Explorer in a Firefox tab! I feel dirty already. What kind of world do we live in that creates such mutant children? What price my soul?

You can even run Windows / Microsoft Update from an IE Tab.

Netscape 8.0 does this out of the box. You can even configure it to always use IE or Firefox for specific URLs. It also detects which engine to use based on the content, so if you have a site with ActiveX controls, it will automatically switch to IE.

This is the reason your blog is at the top of my aggregator's list. Almost fell out of my chair twice on this one -- first when I read it here, second when I installed it and tested it and it worked, without visible defect (other than the Mozilla site looking like crap)

What software are you using for your window buttons. I notice two new buttons on your title bar. Where are they from?

Those buttons are added by Ultramon to push windows to different monitors.

Doesn't work for me. When I switch to IE Tab, I get the "needs additional plug-in" page. FF is 1.0.4 and I am running as LUA.
