It's very important now to remember this fact and link to fix future mistakes of various people that will be talking about FF: "Wow! Here is icon from IE! Cool!"

Now if only Opera would do the same...

But seriously, I find it strange that using this icon in IE will help to make both browsers consistency better. Sounds more like if we use this icon, the step back from Firefox to IE7 will be less of a problem for our users.

i think it muswt be so. If using IE will be more likly for the endusers, then just let em go...
it's competition...

what woulda happened if FF wanted to use an IE icon?

would they say something like: "No problem, the licensing fee will be X per installation of FF" ?
