Essay: The 1986 Mets.
Why should anyone care?
Picking up where we left off last night -- you can probably count on one hand the number of people who use Opera to read MSN (not so true of SN though). Key point that the Times didn't get, to balance the piece --> MSN is not a monopoly. If they want to block people using Opera or Mozilla or whatever, why should anyone care?
It would have been much more serious if MSIE couldn't read Yahoo or Google, or this site. Or if they were modifying the content of all the sites their browser reads. Why? Because MSIE is a monopoly.
We admire and thank Opera, Mozilla, iCab et al for perseverence, and someday when MSIE doesn't have the Web by the throat we'll appreciate them even more.
