Internet Explorer is superior, Microsoft says

Microsoft India Windows Client director Rishi K Srivastava says Internet Explorer's success cannot be attributed to its access through Windows. He believes the reason why so many people use it is because it's superior.
If you have access to a better product why you would not choose it. IE is much secure and only a large corporation like Microsoft can invest so much into security,” counters Microsoft India Windows Client director Rishi K Srivastava.

Competition has clearly re-ignited innovation in the almost stagnant industry. Open source community, for one, claims that IE has virtually closed its doors to innovation due to huge market access through Windows.

“With the emergence of browsers like Firefox, browsers are once again seeing the emergence of new features,’’ says Krishna Kumar, editor, PC Quest, which distributes Firefox with the magazine.

Microsoft disagrees, “Internet Explorer is due to release its new version (IE 7.0) in 2006, just 18 months after we released IE 6 SP2. It’s mainly the techie community that’s trying other browsers. Average computer users are more comfortable with IE.”
