Why ?

opera is serious competition to IE as browsers go, and any sites i find, that don't display properly in opera, i write to the webmaster of the site to find out why.

Viva La Opera

I hope the DOJ gets wind of this exclusionary behaviour before they cave in too fast with these guys.

Microsoft urged the states to accept the plan. Company lawyer John Warden called the agreement "good for the parties, and for consumers as we fully expect the states will conclude."

He added the "greatest beneficiary is the national interest."

The last refuge of a scoundrel is patriotism. What a sicko joke; the notion that MS is somehow interested in the "national interest".

I think the real kick to the teeth is the fact that only geeks -- the choir -- know this is happening.

The general populace doesn't have a clue.

>the general public doesn't have a clue<

I disagree! After looking at my log files today, my traffic from MSN which has been a constant for nearly two years is down more than 33%. You bet they know!!!! They can't get in and have seen the same message the rest of us have seen.

Because (like me) they couldn't find where to download the new programme, they have moved on to other SE's.

All of a sudden my AOL hits have increased by 26%. Is it a coincidence? I somehow doubt it!

I hope you're right, Liane. I hope you are right.

Liane, your traffic from MSN is down also!? Please do tell more here [webmasterworld.com]. I would love to have someone else saying they lost traffic there also. I feel like the only one :)
