> 1. Opera etc might be able to charge for their browser again
They do charge for their browser. The embedded versions are not given away
free. And I gladly paid their modest fee to eliminate the embedded advertising,
since it is the fastest and most nimble browser I have yet to use (though
Mozilla is not looking too bad).
Speaking of which, there is a good article on Salon regarding the browser war
that is happening on mobile devices:
And Opera seems to have the upper hand here.
Not a bad business model if you ask me. MS can be beaten.....in fact, I would
propose that many users are tired of insecure, bloated, slow and expensive
MS products and are open to other alternatives more so than ever before. So
there may just be a browser market with a sustainable business (meaning
financial) model out there.
