MSDN downloads now supports Firefox and Opera

Microsoft now supports Firefox and Opera for downloading stuff in MSDN subscriber area. I'm certainly not praising Microsoft for making a simple download service work with any browser – it should've done so a long time ago. Yet still, I do see a significant attitude shift here. Even with IE7 and all that coming out, they're actually recognizing that a group of by-heart Microsoft people such as the MSDN Subscribers has a valid desire to use other browsers.
No matter what IE7 does, it will be in a competitive position. Even though people at Microsoft (quite rightfully) seem to believe in its success, it's nice to see it not get supported by building non-compliant web sites. We're getting in a better direction, and I honestly believe it this time.

    We all want to believe in IE7's success. It would relieve us from hacking CSS so much.
