    Well , my humble apologies too all the firefox & ms fans who might have fainted on seeing the title . But check this website out www.msfirefox.com . The people behind this fake site have done a mighty good job in copying the MS product advertisement styles .
    BTW hover over the 'Fast Fun' link on the features page --- I just love it .
