And I am just thrilled to see IE not go to MSN when I type in a wrong

demonstration, and trust Verisign more than Microsoft.
Doesn't configuring browser behavior by making fundamental changes to the
nature of the .com and .net zones strike you as overkill?
In my browser, I can go into the configuration menu and specify whatever
behavior I want for handling of unknown hosts (or at least I could, until
Verisign broke that behavior). This seems to me to be a more natural way
of configuring the behavior of my software than imposing on the entire
rest of the world a configuration that's slightly more convenient for me.
Besides, I want unknown hosts to go to Google instead. How do I get
Verisign to do that?
