Microsoft In part three of TechCrunch's interview with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, they discuss web browsers. Ballmer calls Chrome and Safari marketshare numbers a "rounding error," and takes note of the fact that Google is going to be calling both its OS and browser "Chrome," pointing out that in this modern era, "the notion of operating systems being independent of internet access and internet ability to render important things in the internet is kind of not a sensible concept." In other words, he thinks it's unfair to persecute Microsoft for tying IE to Windows. He discusses Firefox, and rags on Google's OS strategy, and finished up on an evaluation of the Netbook/MID market and how Microsoft intends to compete there.

My ASUS 1005HA netbook rocks on computing performance in a small platform, but the Windows 7 browser stinks compared to Chrome!

I wrote a review of the ASUS 1005HA that provides some processor performance numbers which help Chrome work so well. http://bit.ly/44CHFm
