Netscape 8.0 disables Internet Explorer

Netscape 8.0 disables Internet Explorer

Microsoft has confirmed that installing the recently launched Netscape 8.0 on your PC will stop Internet Explorer from displaying XML-files, like blog feeds. In his blog, David Massy, a senior Microsoft program manager, said that users who install Netscape 8.0 and use IE to visit an XML file or XML file with an XSLT transformation applied, will get a blank page instead of the content they were after. Microsoft is investigating, but in the meantime has posted a work around, that involves removing the troublesome Netscape and fiddling with IE’s registry settings.
