Funny enough, mass media is doing the same thing
(venting about something, not spanking Microsoft
) with Opera for yesterday's call for the EU to investigate Microsoft for the same reason those developers are criticising them, oh, the irony...
Opera's movement has a valid point and a not so valid one, but it's not excuse to bash someone just because... err... don't know, there's no logical reason for Opera bashing, not this kind at least. Perhaps the mass media wants a closed Internet with only two players and no room for the other 30+ browsers around?
Well, enough hijacking. I hope that Microsoft listens to the criticism and get their act together, just for the sake of the entire web and for their millions of users who deserve some respect. IE7 was a step in the right direction, IE8 should be a jump.
