***FS*** The way I see it Microsoft / IE have two choices. They can clean up their act (browser) and stop gaming people's navigational intent via BS takeovers of your/my traffic to their "Live" property (this basically goes to improving the usefulness of their browser) .. or they can gradually perish as people like you, I, Firefox, Opera, Safari and others work against them to undermine their position. Nobody would work against them if they were delivering a better product or running a clean show. If they choose the latter, I expect even more nefariousness and acts of dsesperation as they go down at an accelerated pace. Serious serious prediction.
