In the IE title bar usually this info shows:
<TITLE> - MS Internet Explorer

where of course <TITLE> is the text that the creator of the page has choosen.

My question is:
How do I change the text "MS Internet Explorer"??

For example, i want it to read:

<TITLE> - MY BROWSER

Any clues?

You cannot - this is imbedded int the HTML code of the site you visit.

Sorry - I also think that you cannot do what you really want as this is in the code - - maybe if you could decompile the code and change it, then recompile you might.

Is this what you are looking for??
Changing the Internet Explorer Window Title (Windows 9x and NT)
This setting allows you to customize Internet Explorer by using your own window title. For example you could rename IE to 'My Browser' or anything else you like!
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new string value, or modify the existing value, to equal the title you would like.
Note: Delete the value of 'WindowTitle' to change the title back to the default.
For example, the setting may look like:
(Default)            (value not set)
WindowTitle         "My Browser"
 Registry Settings:
Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
Value Name: Window Title
Data Type: REG_SZ

FYI there was a entire OEM Exporer build pack that was distributed to ISP's a while ago that allowed you to change even the spinning world to your own icon as well...

It also had a list of those reg keys in an INF file...

Since there seem to be some points grabbers posting bogus answers on several questions then I am going to post as the answer to lock this one up.
