Word Of The Day

I lived through the first browser war of the '90's. It was a different time then, a time of multiple browsers, each nipping to take the next bite in market share.

Netscape ruled.

But reigns always come to an end. Microsoft wanted in, and created Internet Explorer, packed right into Windows. Netscape didn't have a chance. Explorer reigned supreme. A cornucopia of legal actions were taken.

It was hardly quick. It was hardly merciful. It was just war.

Now? Google Chrome reigns. Internet Explorer? Retired, replaced by Microsoft Edge, now built on open source Chromium, which uses the same rendering engine as Chrome.

If you can't litigate them, open their source code.

War never changes. The tactics just evolve.
