Why do you say that AOL will no longer support Mozilla?

I can not figure out any reason for AOL to continue to support IE.

Complete dominance of IE would help MSN get a leg up on AOL because Microsoft could integrate the latest greatest features of a new version of IE into MSN before AOL even knew what the new features were. So AOL would always be behind the curve of web browser innovation.

Complete dominance of IE would also help Microsoft sell more copies of FrontPage. Right now DreamWeaver and GoLive are significantly better web development tools, but if Microsoft puts new features into IE then FrontPage will always be the first to integrate development of those features.
