bug

DO NOT click that link!

Microsoft has published a great “solution” , or better a work-around, for a bug in IE: Don’t click on links! Just type them in manually!

Because they are too stupid to show the correct address in the address bar (and status bar), you might be on a different site than you would expect. Therefore, you should just type the address yourself, so that you are certain where you’re going…

Click for example this link. If you only see http://www.microsoft.com in the address bar after clicking, it’s time to start using a real browser, such as Mozilla, instead of the crap you’re using now!
