Internet Explorer At its Mix '06 designer confab next week, Microsoft will distribute a 'layout-complete' IE 7.0 test build, yet another step along the way toward the final IE 7.0 release, and talk IE futures, too.

There are numerous examples that "the better product" has nothing to do with market success.

In the case I mentionned (NC4 vs IE4), the it was the better product and not about popularity. IE before 4.0 wasn't very good. No one used IE2 and IE3.

WinAMP still is very popular. Even though MS still bundles WMP with Windows Guess why? Could it be that WMP makes a crappy MP3 player?

Your logic also neglects the fact that there were more than just two browsers..

More than just two browsers? There was no others in the 4.0 era. Mosaic? ICab? Tell us who was the other web browser.
