Microsoft "In a move that has raised eyebrows, Microsoft has submitted a patch to the WebKit project to extend the open source rendering engine with a prototype implementation of the Pointer Events specification that the company is also working on together with Google, Mozilla, and Opera. WebKit is the rendering engine used in Apple's Safari and Google's Chrome browsers, making Microsoft's work a contribution to products that are in direct competition to its own."

Keep in mind that less that 1% of the world knows that there are browsers other than Internet Explorer


Luckily, that isn't true anymore. Europe, South America, Asia (sans CJK) has long since left IE behind. And IE usage share is miniscule on smartphones. Also, at least around here, non-computer-savvy people no longer call any browser "Explorer". The world has come a long way in the last five years or so...
