Well, imagine that! You end-of-life a program on the Mac and BOOM, Apple stops including it with the release of their newest OS. According to readers of Accelerate Your Macintosh, who received their copies of Tiger early, there is no Internet Explorer included in the installation.
My take: thank you, Apple! I don't have much use for a browser that U.S.-CERT considers a risk.
There's also unconfirmed rumblings that both Stuffit Expander and Acrobat Reader are missing from Tiger as well. Can anybody confirm?
ps—I've included a subtle subliminal message in this post. Can you spot it?!
