End of Free IE Not the End of Web Standards
The WaSP (Web Standards Project) breaks its silence over recent troubling announcements regarding Internet Explorer’s future:
That Microsoft’s browsers were free in the first place is due to their overzealous competition in the browser market. Microsoft earned a conviction on antitrust violations for their actions, but it is only relevant to us insofar as it implies a greater responsibility on Microsoft’s part to support industry standards—a responsibility they have said they accept. We are holding them to their word.
