How the times have changed.... AOL used to pay MS for IE-Core so that they could make their own browser on top of it. Now MS contributes code freely to a project for that is used more by its competitors.

Now MS knows they are not going to win the game; they are going to follow the Lt Commander Data model of playing Strategema : don't play to win, rather play so that the game lasts indefinitely.

Back in the 90's you actually purchased software to browse the web. Nothing but Netscape[^]

Where would we be now if we the companies (MS, Google, et al) charged for the browsers instead of spying on our every move?
