He’s right about the lack of innovation over the last five years (at least on the user experience side), but I have hope that will change as Mozilla’s platform matures and Apple delivers newer versions of Safari.

I wonder what Microsoft has up its sleeve though, after freezing 6.0. I hope the rest of the browser market DOES react and take the lead (since MS supposedly has 90% browser market share).

Maybe Micro$narf really doesn’t have 90% market share. Maybe “they” (you know, “them”) created a spider with a user-agent of “MSIE 4/5/6” that crawls the Web and hits site after site so that server logs reflect that statistic. Blammo…virtual market share!

Isn’t tabbed browsing a pretty innovative feature? I guess the idea itself isnt that remarkable..but i consider it a pretty major addition to web browsing.

He obviously has not used Opera 7 ;)

Tabbed browsing isn’t “a pretty innovative” feature because it exists since the early versions of Opera (3+ years ago).
