Another cool (but useless, really) thing about Mac Internet Explorer 5: when you hold your mouse over an image and the ALT text pops up, it does it in a little speech balloon (just like the Mac’s “balloon help.”).
As some of you know, I don’t really use a lot of Microsoft software. In fact, I haven’t run Internet Explorer on my Mac for a couple of years, because when I last ran it, I had horrible problems with system instability. Netscape has worked pretty well for me, but it is showing its age, so I decided to go ahead and try out IE5 for the Mac, which came out today. I’m having mixed feelings about it. It crashes much more than it should — five crashes so far since I downloaded it. But on the other hand, it has a lot of really nifty useful features. I found this post about some non-obvious cool features in the forum at MacNN, and the guy’s right — these really are cool. If the damned thing was more stable, I’d run it all the time. As it is, though, I’m going to be juggling browsers for a while.
Speaking of the Kingdome, this is all that’s left.
