I think this is a good point - it seems that much of the technology industry is heading away from modularity, for example, Apple laptops, because it permits a smaller and more efficient product. I don't doubt that Google will create a useful and successful ecosystem here, but it's hard to see it completely dominating the smartphone industry in the short term.

The report is almost useless because it has compared the latest stable and dev releases of IE with versions of Firefox and Chrome that are years old.

To use a car analogy, it is comparing the safety features of a '10 Chev Corvette and a 1970 Chev BelAir. I would be embarrassed if the company I worked for released such a report.

Disc space -- the final frontier!
