IE 7: so much for Firefox

The party’s over.

In the past year, the little browser that could, Firefox, became the people’s hero, an underdog warrior that took a huge swipe at its enemy, Internet Explorer. IE dipped below 90 percent market share for the first time in years, while Firefox lured users like the Pied Piper, blowing past its own fundraising goals and reigniting the browser wars.

Meanwhile, the bad news continued to mount for Microsoft. An IE exploit put even Windows XP SP2 users at risk from phishing schemes, even as Microsoft touted SP2 as the most secure version of Windows yet. Worse, major security companies and the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team began to recommend that computer users dump IE for something more secure (read: Firefox).

By early this year, Netscape was emboldened to reenter the fray, announcing in January that it would release a new version of the Netscape browser, designed specifically to resist phishing schemes–something even Firefox lacks. Then, Opera said it would offer free licenses to universities, in order to make sure it would still be relevant in the new world browser order. And through it all, what was the response from Microsoft? Silence.

�Part of becoming more IT aware (as a company) is an appreciation for de facto standards, and ActiveSync is the de facto standard,� said Nokia Executive Vice President of Enterprise Solutions Mary McDowell, defending the company�s decision to bow to Microsoft�s might, rather than use its market leadership to push the software giant into supporting open synchronization protocols.
