Windows The browser saga between Microsoft, the EU, and various browser makers just got a new chapter. We all know how the EU and Microsoft are in a legal tussle over the inclusion of Internet Explorer with Windows. Microsoft surprised everyone in June by announcing that Windows 7 would ship without Internet Explorer in Europe, a move it had hoped would silence the EU. The EU and Opera, however, were not impressed, and now Microsoft has caved in to the pressure.

This might've actually made a difference if they had done it 10 years ago when it actually mattered, but now what's the point? Honestly, I don't remember the last time I had to pull up IE because a particular site wouldn't work in whatever browser I was using.

IE is slowly but surely losing marketshare to Firefox and Safari, and guess what... it happened WITHOUT any government intervention.
