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.

Any new browser startup now enters a crowded marketplace


Only Opera isn't a startup and has had plenty of time to acquire a grassroots movement and support from other big companies.
Maybe Opera just isn't good enough?

I'm purposely not commenting on that. I simply wanted to remind a few people that Firefox isn't a valid "zero-to-hero" phenomenon as they like to paint it. As the inheritor of Netscape (the first dominant browser) it was never really a "startup".
