Microsoft says Firefox not a threat to IE

“I don’t agree that just because a (competing) product has a feature that we don’t have, that feature is important,” [Ben English, Microsoft's security and management product manager] said. “It is not. It is only important if it is a feature the customer wants. There are plenty of products out there with features we don’t have. We have plenty of features that our customers don’t use.”

Incredible. This guy is either totally clueless or lying through his teeth. I vote for the latter.

By refusing to update IE and fix known bugs, Microsoft causes me to waste hours every month. In the entire web design industry I would not be surprised if Microsoft costs millions in lost revenue due to people having to work around bugs in IE.

Link (Cnet); Get FireFox
