Windows "Senate Judiciary Committee staffers plan to take a look at allegations that Microsoft has made it difficult for competing Web browsers to run on a certain version of Windows, an aide to Antitrust subcommittee Chairman Herb Kohl told The Hill Thursday." Good. We have to nip this in the bud, and with a bit of luck, it alerts Washington to the iOS situation as well. More browser competition equals a better web - mobile devices aren't magically exempt from this just because they have no keyboard. As simple as that.

That is an interesting fact, and I agree that this would be a very good middle ground. Possibly restricting the code you generate to the JIT to be run in a secure context as well. Hopefully Microsoft can pick up that idea.
