Different results in MSIE and Firefox ?
Here is something odd : is Google supposed to deliver different content depending on the browser used ? While doing my periodic check on how the Wikipedia page about online poker rank in Google when looking for these terms, I noticed different results in MSIE and Firefox.

What the … ? I double checked Google's search options and preferences, I am positive there were no difference between the two browsers, but they still returned different results. And I don't really see why it would behave like this. Ever noticed something similar ?

    The results are identical to me. Did you try clearing your caches/history and trying? Perhaps your IE install was using some old data.
