Is Microsoft Bullying Firefox Users?
Matthew Gates writes "It seems Microsoft have been using MSN Search as a stick with which to beat users of Mozilla Firefox. Firefox users who try to submit web sites to MSN Search receive a message telling them, "Please Upgrade Your Browser". This message is not sent to users of other alternative browsers, including current versions of regular Mozilla, Konqueror and Opera, whose users fell foul of similar tactics in the past. The implication is that Microsoft are more concerned about the success of Firefox than they have been letting on."
