Sorry, but then they should perhaps stick with Windows, if they don't
even want to know what *kind* of application IE is. I agree that people
might not make the connection between Net->Galeon and 'my hotmail
account/google search', but labelling Galeon as 'MS Internet Explorer
lookalike' is a bit over-the-top I think.

Then, I might have gotten you wrong.
