Internet Explorer is no longer the completely dominant browser it used to be , but that hasn’t stopped its team from continuing its cake-giving tradition with the makers of Firefox. According to Mozilla employee Matt Brubeck , the IE team began it all when it sent over a cake to congratulate the company on the launch of Firefox 2 in 2006. Since then, the Internet Explorer crew has continued to send over cakes for each new version, though they smartly switched over to less-costly cupcakes when Mozilla began its accelerated 6-week upgrade cycles.
