    "I don't believe it is a true statement that IE doesn't have the features that our customers want," he said. "We take user feedback very seriously. If you have that feedback, then you should feed it back to us because we will feed it to the product team."

    The question is - even if Firefox or Opera ends up ruling Browser World
    you still need Microsoft (xp) to run it
    so 1 is microsoft 2 is the add ons
    will microsoft loose any cash in the race against ze Fox
    no

    cause its part of the base

    (sorry but im to lazy to start on linux)

    I use ze Fox because its more its more secure than IE.

    The real problem is, teh IE and Windows are widely used,
    thus the maliscious code is done for microsoft products, mainly.

    I bet if ze Fox, or Opera, or other gets to be so big, it will most likely sart getting the
    "security issues" too.

    Everybody hates Crapware, but has anyone ever seen a dude IRL who does those?
    Wouldn't you slap 'em silly?

    Spoiler: Show

    yeah, unfortunately it seems IE and netscape are the most supported by ISPs, etc.
    shit, my ISP wont even offer tech support if i aint runnin IE or netscape
    i mean, shit, it wouldnt KILL them to look into firefox, maxthon, etc, etc
    i mean they are free ffs
    they need to hire ME for tech support

    from that web link:
    We have plenty of features that our customers don't use.
    haha, aint THAT the truth, for M$ period

    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.
