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.

text editors and desktop shells are just applications that compete by themselves.

web browser are quite different as they are capable of either promoting or hindering the expansion of web technologies, depending on how well they handle web standards and whether they inter-operate well.

for this reason I do not think that your logic holds
