Google tells IE users to get Firefox

Starting today, Google's homepage is running an ad for Firefox with Google Toolbar that is only displayed to Internet Explorer users (currently only in the US). Fantastic! Let's hope it makes millions of people download Firefox.

I wonder what Microsoft's response to this will be. Wouldn't it be great if they responded by fixing the remaining CSS bugs and implementing the missing parts of CSS 2.1 in IE7 before it ships? ;-)
