Opera Takes On Microsoft
Opera Software — the company behind the popular alternative browser Opera — has decided to go after Microsoft with an oddly familiar claim.
According to reports, Opera filed a complaint against Microsoft with the European Union Commission, complaining about Microsoft's bundling of Internet Explorer with the Windows operating system as well as IE's notorious lack of support for web standards. The complaint apparently asks the Commission to order Microsoft to either stop bundling IE with it's software, or require Microsoft to pre-install alternative browsers on their systems.
It also asks that they be ordered to make Internet Explorer compatible with approved web standards, going so far as to accuse Microsoft of failing to live up to it's own public pronouncements, and engaging in an "Embrace, Extend, and Extinguish" strategy.
