Legal "Opera Software filed a complaint with the European Commission yesterday which is aimed at giving consumers a genuine choice of Web browsers. The complaint describes how Microsoft is abusing its dominant position by tying its browser, Internet Explorer, to the Windows operating system and by hindering interoperability by not following accepted Web standards. Opera has requested the Commission to take the necessary actions to compel Microsoft to give consumers a real choice and to support open Web standards in Internet Explorer."

I hope nobody brings up some BS about IE being the de facto standard. If you think IE is the de facto standard, you need to go to the dictionary and learn what the word standard means. IE being a standard means that its quirky behavior would be documented well enough that 3rd parties could reproduce the behavior on their own browsers.
