While I agree this IS way overdue...It's the delivery that troubles me. This goes back to MS cutting loose the browser so others have a shot at producing a better mouse trap.

This seems to me like a typical MS solution. Do it half assed, using the work of others, then make it hard for anyone else to do it.

Once it's in the wild we'll see how long it remains "reasonably" safe. But happy your having a good experience of it! It's a start.
