You are not asking them to download a new browser to replace ie. You
are asking them to download the basis for a mud client (which will
then install your changes). I agree if you where asking them to
replace IE it wouldn't happen in general. It may even be best to go
ahead and package up mozilla and the mud extensions and just offer a
'mud client' download from your site. Thats kind of thing is very
common, even for non-technical users.
