Quoted in a recent ZDnet article:
“[Now that Microsoft has announced the end of standalone versions of Internet Explorer,] people will think, ‘are the applications I’m writing for the browser browser-agnostic, or are they IE applications—which makes them Windows applications?’ If I want an application to run on a Linux desktop or Macintosh desktop, maybe the way to do that is to ensure it runs on Mozilla, Safari and the other main browsers.” —Michael Silver, Gartner Group research vice president
“The bottom line is that consumer-facing Web sites have been remiss in supporting the latest standards, and unresponsive to the needs of many users. It’s time to reassess that approach, and Microsoft’s decision is a good spur to doing just that.” —James Governor, RedMonk principal analyst
