Comment: Re:So Windows will be shipping with THREE browsers (Score 1) 248 248

Immersive IE, the metro/ modern / Windows 8 store style Windows app version is slated to go away in Windows 10, so there'll only be two browsers. Given MS and their complete inability to name things I expect the difference will be IE / IE for business or IE / IE Express but I probably need more coffee to get more confusing.

I'd say Linux is the most used OS, specifically the Android distribution. Ignoring that, variety is good as long as people stick to standards. Microsoft is no longer the clear number one, so they have to play along as well. Even they don't insist on Windows these days. Look at the supported platforms for Office.

This is clearly another case of too many mad scientists, and not enough hunchbacks.
