Opera sues Microsoft

As a web developer, creating web pages that work in IE is a nightmare. Hopefully the world's worst browser gets its comeuppance.

"Microsoft either fails to implement industry-standard accepted open practices or implements them in a manner that is not faithful to the standard by adding undisclosed proprietary extensions," ECIS' Thomas Vinje, the group's legal counsel, charged in a separate statement.

Web developers have been making the same case individually. In reaction to posts placed on the official IE blog, developers have blasted Microsoft for not properly supporting standards in the current IE 7, and not spelling out what standards will be supported in the upcoming IE 8.

Oh that is great!

Glorious I must say.

As a web developer, I certainly hope it brings about much change on IE's part.

I don't think that was a wise move. All the people who sue MS tend to look bad (even if people do indeed dislike MS). I wish nobody sued anybody, and we could all get along. Seriously, when did suing anyone help the world?? (Bah, legal crud, so freakin' ugly, glad I'm no lawyer.)
