Microsoft Microsoft has just responded to Google's move regarding Exchange ActiveSync. Sadly, instead of addressing the very real problems consumers are about to face, Microsoft starts talking about switching to Outlook.com.

Because Enterprise customers and other businesses build apps against .NET version X. It is the same reason why they produce IE, their customers want a browser with a stable set of features.

IE has been anything but consistent: the rendering engine performs massively different from version to version.

It's the worst performing browser for breaking sites between versions.

It is consistent within its own version, which is what an Enterprise customer wants out of a web browser.

Microsoft says "IE will support these features"

IE supports those features and newer features aren't added until a new version of the browser.
