The Monkey On Microsoft's Back

Poor Microsoft. This week, the Redmond, Wash., giant is gearing up for the next big release of its Web browser, a leap from Internet Explorer 7 to IE 8. When open-source competitor Mozilla released its last update of Firefox in June, the Web went wild: People downloaded more than 8 million copies in 24 hours.

Microsoft's release might not have such a frat party feel. Even as it gears up to release IE 8, the developers behind the Firefox Web browser are experimenting with a new technology that sharpens the threat their browser software poses to Microsoft's most valuable businesses.

The story is too old to be commented.

Yea well.. IE was never and will never be useful for anything but checking my bank account since Firefox doesn't support the weird security they have.

As soon as Firefox 3 was released IE7 became obselete, it is still pretty good if you download an addon called IEPro (basically makes it like Firefox), but Firefox is miles better due to it's stability.

What does this have to do with gaming?

Nothing but there is a tech section on the site. If it's negative MS/Xbox360 it's an insta-post here.

Hence the reason it's not in a gaming channel.

Dude, why don't you say that when it's PS3 news on the receiving end. Oh wait, nvm. I know why
