And it's good to hear Microsoft execs admit to their own product's failure.Fair play to Hakon Wium Lie and the anonymous web developer, even if Opera isn't a suitable alternative, as said above.

With Firefox's market share gaining it seems that Internet Explorer's dominance could be on the wane - though I have difficulty forseeing a time when Microsoft doesn't bundle it with Windows, consumers expect a internet browser (see Safari on Mac OS X, Firefox / Konqueror in most free software distrubutions). If the EU do hit Microsoft for including IE, I find it difficult to see how it would be unbundeled - how would consumers download a web browser without one, unless it was a option when buying the computer. Perhaps the alternative is to have a option at install where the user selects a browser...Good to see that the UK web industry is alive and kicking - though coverage of teh event seems to be limited to erm the BBC.

His audience should have been bigger.I mean, in quantity, more people, it's nothing personal, Darren.... Wed 18 Mar 2009 13:27:34 GMT+1
