More sloppiness in Internet Explorer for Mac OS X

The picture below shows what happens when:

  1. you start typing a URL in the Address Bar
  2. your typing causes Explorer to display a list of possible options to automatically complete your entry
  3. instead of selecting one of the options right away, you move the browser window to a different location

Needless to say, if you do the exact same thing in Safari, the list of options for automatic completion disappears.

A “normal” software company would fix such obvious visual glitches in no time. With Microsoft, such interface crimes go unpunished for years. (This particular problem has been around forever.)
