The Microsoft Monopoly Is At It Again...

    Not sure if anyone else has pointed this one out, but good old Microsoft seems to be at it again with its monopoly control agenda...

    Feedburner is of couse a popular way of promoting feeds and getting info on the amount of your feed subscribers etc., but I was astonished to see the difference between a Feedburner feed page on Firefox and on IE7.

    Have a look at this feed on both browsers to see what I mean: (It's not my feed by the way)

    IE7 doesn't allow you to subscribe any other way apart from their own way!!! :mad:

    lol That definitely is crap. Is it just browser-based, or do they have a deal with feedburner or something (I'd guess not)? I can't imagine that it's in any way ok for a browser to be altering a company's site and/or services w/o their permission though, especially deliberately (definitely isn't a simple design issue). But frankly, I don't care that much. I only use IE to check designs anyway.
