Why Microsoft wants to behave this way?
Started playing with Web development for the last three months. Initially started with JQuery Mobile Framework to develop applications.
If at all I go for in search for documentation on an HTML element or anything I get some of the below stuff:
Provided by most browsers, but not Internet Explorer
Provided by many browsers, including Internet Explorer.
Why do they behave this way? They can show that they are unique by providing something that others don’t offer to get attention and look unique.(like Apple, Device Orientation support provided only on iOS Browsers) But why is Microsoft has done the other way?
Do they gain anything this way?
Even though the following is nowhere related to Web, I got remembered this quotation of Steve Jobs
“The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste. They have absolutely no taste. And I don’t mean that in a small way, I mean that in a big way, in the sense that they don’t think of original ideas, and they don’t bring much culture into their products.”
“I am saddened, not by Microsoft’s success — I have no problem with their success. They’ve earned their success, for the most part. I have a problem with the fact that they just make really third-rate products.”
