Isn't Google's mission statement something like, "Kill Microsoft." They've been doing a pretty good job so far!

it will be when adobe (and macromedia for those not aware) join forces with apple and firefox that they have a chance of pushing MS around. the unco-ordinated attacks is having little effect on them at the moment.

I do think it is funny that new macs are being shipped with XP, although it is being done by resellers and not apple directly.

What? Are you sure?

Wasn't Google and Microsoft trying to merge or working together?

I think so. Better double check your sources.

If that happens, foxfire is going down.
