That’s actually Firefox, perfectly diguised.
From the author:
Yes, it’s true. There are some people that prefer the look of Internet Explorer to the way Firefox looks (though I’ve never met one). So, I’ve created this simple How To guide that shows you just what needs to be done to get Firefox looking just like IE. The goal of this project is mainly to demonstrate the power of Firefox’s themes and extensions in making the browser work the way you want it to.
The disclaimers and apologies are the best part. (Sample: “And, YES, I still think Internet Explorer should be removed, placed in the corner and set on fire.”)

Those disclaimers and apologies are an important defense mechanism. Without them, someone might think you actually like IE.
That is funny. It’s really rather neat and tidy to have your browsers look very similar, especially if you frequently switch among them. Don’t laugh, but I tend to do high security browsing with IE7-x64 and do the rest with either Firefox or Opera.
One of the first things someone did after IE7 hit was create a skin for Opera that replicated the new look. I like it and use it on Opera because I like the way IE7 works and looks. Heck, I even created several of the same keyboard shortcuts just to reduce pnemonic time.
Wow, I apologize for the big misspelling “pnemonic” for mnemonic! Oy.
What a waste of time.
So now we need a skin for IE to make its Firefox skin look like Opera emulating Maxthon, and then we’ll be COMPLETE!

I disagree. You’re only going to get confused between them, and as soon as you do something as simple as right-click, you will find differences that will surprise and annoy you.
