Internet Explorer 007 - licence to kill

Fox hunting season in Redmond, Washington : tired of being snatched whole market shares, Microsoft hired IE double-o-seven to whack Mozilla Firefox. IE7's main "innovation" ? The very tabs system invented by its competitor. An unprotected specie, just like the windows concept invented by Apple before MS turned it into its most valuable brand.
Internet Explorer already proved leathal against Netscape. Not thanks to its own virtues but thanks to Microsoft's dominant position in the OS field. The time for justice to nail the murderer, it was too late for Sun... now a major promoter of open source softwares.
Microsoft can cry the EU rivers, and invest millions to prove communicating their codes would endanger their capacity of innovation... I guess it would cost them much more to prove this very capacity of innovation still exists.
