  • > a file in IE served as text/plain

    and MSIE can't render text/plain documents as text/plain if they
    appear to contain html markup

    • And MS actually consciously designed that bug into it. You see, text/plain is supposedly an "ambiguous" MIME type [], meaning IE can assume it knows better than the server that's actually giving it the file.
    • Another one I just remembered: IE doesn't remember the last directory from which you opened an HTML file, defaulting to 'Desktop' every single time. Not even in the same freaking session!
    • I found another one: if a site isn't found due to misspelling, 404 error, etc., it shouldn't go in either the history or completion listings. Blech!
      • and if the 404 error message isn't heavy in kb, MSIE should not ignore it in favor of a "more helpful" version. I'd much rather have a 1kb page with only a link to a site map/search than the generic MSIE page not found message.

  • Mozilla runs on win, you should be able to get it installed (and it's not picky if you don't have admin rights to the box). There also is a version of IE (using the IE ActiveX control or whatever) that has tabs. Someone mentionned it here recently, a search might reveal it.
