Even Mac software gets the blues ... or at least IE does

In our ongoing audit for one of our clients that has a very high Mac count in their organization, we are trying to learn as much as possible about them.

This error, captured by the screen capture software called Grab, happens every time Microsoft Explorer is opened on one particular iMac G5:

The application Explorer quit unexpectedly.
The details don't necessarily provide clues as to what was going on.

It took a few tries to figure out a way around it.

It seems that whatever page Explorer is trying to open is causing it to crash.

Hit the stop button and things seem to be okay. One could browse to another site with no issues.

The current MS E (IE) version for Mac does not support the SBS self signed certificate which is a pain. Mac users have to use Safari to get access to the RWW features with the exception of RDP.

A note to Microsoft: Get developing a browser for Mac that works with self signed certificates please.
