tecosystems: Crazy like a Firefox?
Indeed, it just might buy the PR breathing space needed to allow the IE team to do what it seems they have do - tear IE apart and start fresh.
Just what the browser market needs... another company attempting to rewrite it's product from the ground up (*cough* netscape). Does that mean we'll have to wait 2 years before we see version 8 of IE (well if the next version is bundled in longhorn they might as well... they've got the time) ;-)
Maybe that's how things work in the browser market.
Netscape chooses to rewrite their browser.
Firefox is born (eventually)
Microsoft decides to rewrite IE
Open Source IE is born (eventually)
