Too funny that googles profits are down. Seems their strong-arm tactics didn't work. We haven't had our google adds running for 4 or 5 months now because I can not update my payment info with Internet Explorer or by phone! They told me I had to download some other browser and I told them they were crazy....Some salesman from Google keeps calling telling me Microsoft made it so their browser wouldn't work on Google Account page yet every single link works except the UPDATE PAYMENT INFO. I guess Google is admitting that Microsoft is that much smarter and that google can't fix a link....

Same here, good to see you back.

Seems a strange excuse to me. I would suspect that it's just as likely that Google designed their accounts page not to work with IE.

You mean they would force you to download and use Chrome? Sounds like M$ to me.
