Windows 10 feedback: 'Microsoft, please do a deal with Google to use its browser'

Bye Bye IE

Well no, if MS dump IE in favour of Chrome, then we would in effect be moving from one old monopoly to a new monopoly. Diversity in any product choice is important for progress and competition. This is quite apart from what Google may be doing with the usage data it collects.

I use Firefox, Safari, Chrome and IE, and they all behave differently and render some websites better than others. I look forward to all browsers being HTML5 compatible, so I can use one. With my corporate hat on, yep testing for several different browsers is a pain, internally you only want one, but externally, who am I to dictate which browser my clients choose.

So MS lets keep IE, sometimes it's good and sometimes it's bad, but at least it's a standard on the corporate desktop, and I really don't want to have to retest all my apps on another browser, let alone do all the security testing for an even more leaky product.
