I think his original message said IE5, which is PC/Windows. IE is only
up to 4.5.1 on mac, although 5 is in beta.

IE5 must be taking what you type and running it thru a search engine at
Microsoft. They have one (I think IE5 for the Mac will use it too; there
was something about it in a screen shot on an article on MacIE 5 I saw on
one of the Mac sites I visit daily (MacCentral or MacOS Rumors I think.)
That's probably how it found "tonepad".
