Microsoft gifts pirates with IE7

,----[ Quote ]
| If you look at the numbers, taken from the Inq stats engine over the last
| month or so, with a sample size of 11 million plus geeks, MS is losing,
| badly. The numbers plainly show that MS now has less than half the browser
| share, not coincidently because Mozilla is over half. Looking over months
| past, the share of IE is dropping like a rock and Firefox is gaining quickly.
| Those who realize why IE is such an intolerable security risk certainly seem
| to act upon that info.
|
| Getting back to the story at hand, MS is bleeding marketshare, and is
| prevented from attempting to close the gap by the WGA stake they planted in
| the ground. In that case the stake would have to go, and so it did, with all
| due hypocrisy and ill intent.
|
| When it comes to saving face for the next round of farcical piracy loss
| numbers or an attempt at competitiveness, they actually made the right
| choice. Then again, it is far too little too late.

Free software is clearly winning. Safari and Opera trail behind badly.
