    Microsoft, who recently provided the press with a screenshot of their new Internet search engine displayed on the open source browser Mozilla Firefox, deny doing so.

    One alert reader of the Seattle Post Intelligencer noticed something strange in the Microsoft screenshots of the search engine and upon closer examination the search engine was shown to be running on Firefox under Windows Xp .

    Microsoft's PR firm Waggener Edstrom said yesterday "None of our approved/distributed screen shots of MSN Search were made using a Mozilla Firefox browser. Moving forward, we will not be commenting on this issue".

    geez you can even read where it clearly says Mozilla Firefox up on the Title Bar

    heck I can even see that the Title Bar lists the search as being for new york sightseeing
