Browser war over: Microsoft lost

It's about time to say in public that Microsoft has been left behind:

While they went to sleep after releasing Internet Explorer 5.5/6.0, Mozilla and its companions have added so much value to the browser experience (tabbed browsing, blocking popups, selective cookie management, much much better security, not to mention Mozilla being cross-platform) that I'm not the only one who's stopped using IE...

Jon Udell: "Microsoft's browser isn't the only game in town. The truth is, I never use IE any more."

Eric Meyer comments on Adobe embedding the Opera rendering engine into GoLive: "GoLive users will get used to what Opera does, and may start to perceive Explorer as being more of an outdated and frustrating browser to deal with. It could lead to an interesting change in perception on the part of Web developers and Web authors."
