Aye, but try developing applications for users in Scotland (and we have
several US offices).
When the business suddenly says "everyone must be able to use it", you
suddenly have to score out a whole load of technologies and the development
either takes a lot longer (justify that to the guy paying) or just doesn't
work that well for users.
Don't get me wrong, I would not like any one company to dominate, as
competitiveness = innovation, but surely they could all argue their
"standards" to produce one really good browser. After all, the W3C are able
to do it.
