Truly awesome account of how Microsoft struggled to “get” the Internet — and W3C’s in-hindsight-ineffective efforts to shape the browser war in a productive direction for the Web as a whole during the Dark Ages of IE6 dominance in the early 2000s.
Mozilla Firefox was very important in making the web more open then.
I wonder if Mozilla Firefox has a place now.
