Eaton,

But MS's "innovations", if any, were all done to assert a proprietary control over the Internet browser market, and push Windows further into the forefront. Take the new MS "chrome" spec, that does an end run around VRML and won't be available for any platform other than Windows. Compare that with the cross-platform, scriptable Web-based user interface that the Mozilla team is developing.
