Here is another post on "The Browser wars"...is Microsoft's browser selection screen truely randomized?

I got sucked into this trap and followed the browser wars for awhile. I wondered why Microsoft didn't make a better browser and how Firefox we able to compete. Then I realized...

There is no money in the browser business. Microsoft has never made a cent from Internet Explorer, yet the company has spent billions in development and legal (anti-trust) fees.

When then is no money to be made, why should Microsoft bother with the product? ...they do it as a community service more then anything else. I think they are unconcerned about losing browser market share.

...after all, they have plenty of it. :-)
