IE The Great Microsoft Blunder?

All the work that has to go into keeping the browser afloat is time that could have been better spent on making Vista work as first advertised [...] If you were to put together a comprehensive profit-and-loss statement for IE, there would be a zero in the profits column and billions in the losses column--billions.

a better idea for MS would be, i think, to start work on a whole new browser, and just drop IE (because i don't think MS is willing to rely on an other company's browser)
