Firefox leaning towards Microsoft
It is well known that Google is contributing 70-80% of the Firefox's revenue but after Chrome browser Firefox became restless. It talked inline with Microsoft about Google's Chrome Frame for IE here is more. Firefox also talked about Bing and telling it is better in terms of handling privacy. Firefox also started slowing down some of the new Html5 features like Websocket and other form elements. Websocket has been completed and lying at the whim of review board. It shows symptom of IE team and leaning towards MS side. Will Firefox be bought over by MS? May be atleast we can expect some movement from Firefox towards MS, smells like MS is enemy of Google and for Firefox?
