Microsoft to abandon standalone IE

The software giant is phasing out standalone versions of its Internet Explorer Web browser, according to statements attributed to IE’s program manager on its Web site. [CNET Entertainment & Media]

I wonder what this really means… The browser will become part of the OS officially now, I guess and anything else will probably feel bolted on compared with what develops from within. What about the Mac? I know the MSN browser is technically IE 6 for Mac (since that is how it says hello) but it is not yet available alone and I can’t see that being the reason to subscribe to MSN when you have browser options that are at least as good, if not better.
