Internet Explorer 4.0 was perfection incarnate in a browser. It had Active Desktop. It had Channels. It had motherfucking Channels, the coolest technology that never reached market adoption ever not even a little bit. IE4, in general, was so good that you were going to have it installed on your PC whether you liked it or not.

'That could be the motto for heaven,' said Tim. 'Almost too perfect.'

The one silver lining to life with eyes full of floaters - I don't really mind that my glasses can get smudgy, I'm well trained at not really seeing the things I'm not focused on. (Of course, writing about said floaters puts them in "don't think about a pink elephant" territory)
