Mozilla, Opera unhappy with Windows 7

Posted on Friday, May 08 2009 @ 00:10 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Browser makers Mozilla and Opera Software have raised complaints about Microsoft's upcoming Windows 7 operating system, claiming Microsoft is abusing its market position to push its Internet Explorer browser:
"Our initial review suggests this is a blatant use of the Windows operating system to change the market dynamics of browser usage," Mitchell Baker, chairperson of Mozilla, developer of open-source Firefox browser, told the paper.

No-one at Microsoft could immediately be reached for comment.

Opera, the Norwegian browser company, echoed Mozilla's complaints about Windows 7, the paper said.
