Microsoft has learnt to be open to be in competition or get lost in history books with only one victory against Netscape. That victory was not a victory but a coward win by using unfair means. But now, they cannot play same games against Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Let’s put this thing to some other time or you can google it.
