Hmmm…


Here’s a thought. The Firefox browser starts to make a big dent in the browser narket. Microsoft wants everyone to use their latest version of Internet Explorer (IE8). Suddenly, a vunerability is discovered in IE6 and IE7 (MS knew about this in September) that is so dangerous that Governments are getting involved. Suddenly everyone is updating their browser to IE8, even though they never use it for the internet, because IE is integral to the operating system. Bingo!!!! IE8 becomes the most popular browser again (V3)

Now forgive my cynical nature, but what if that ‘vunerability’ or ‘flaw’ was buried in one of the service pack or updates …
