Can Microsoft Convince You To Switch?

Everyone likes a good horse race even when the race is fixed. That's about how I see the supposed race between Internet Explorer and Firefox. Ever since IE was included with Microsoft's operating system, its dominance has pretty much been a done deal. But that doesn't mean the front runner should sit back and rest on its laurels. And up until now, that's what Microsoft has been doing.

Which means there are a lot of folks like me out there who have made the switch from contented IE user to happy Firefox fan. It wasn't just the tabs that convinced me--they had a lot to do with it, of course, but Opera has had tabs for a lot longer than Firefox, and I've never become an Opera lover. (Although I do go for a bit of Rigoletto now and again--OK, old joke. Sorry.) InformationWeek Weblog: Can Microsoft Convince You To Switch?
