+ - Internet Explorer antitrust case set to expire-> 1

Submitted by

jbrodkin writes "The judgment in United States vs. Microsoft is on the verge of expiring nearly a decade after antitrust officials ruled Microsoft unfairly limited competition against its Internet Explorer browser. Microsoft has two more weeks to fulfill the final requirements in the antitrust case, which is scheduled to expire on May 12. Although Netscape ultimately didn't benefit, the settlement seems to have done its job. From a peak of 95% market share, by some estimates Internet Explorer now has less than half of the browser market. Microsoft, of course, filed its own antitrust action against Google this week, and even commented publicly on the irony of its doing so, noting that Microsoft has "spent more than a decade wearing the shoe on the other foot.""
