Take the shame: Microsofties ADMIT to playing Internet Explorer name-change game
So, what should it be called? A cop out ands simply shorten it to 'IE' or something random yet connected like 'Tortoise'?
Got the perfect name for it..."Google Chrome Downloader"

Just remove it from the OS. Add per connection proxy settings please.
NotWebkit - which is basically every other browser now, just another monoculture that the devs are jumping on, another option would be
Unsupported - which it is now as all the precious crayon toating web 'designers' only dev for webkit.
IE has its problems but it is reasonable and actually runs without causing a stack of problems on a managed network unlike certain other alternatives. We have already seen chrome split off its webkit implementation due to all the cruft but it will probably have to maintain a heavy compatibility layer to deal with all the webkit specific behaviour. Give it a couple of years and it will be guilty of all the same things people go off about Windows and IE for due to having to support the behaviour and quirks of all the older webkit engines as well as any new features.
Personally I find IE to be the best option still on Windows Domains. I had switched to Google Chrome but in a number of instances after recent upgrades found that it's started to inexplicably block sites.
