It's not going to happen soon, if ever. A browser can't currently
replace the smooth interaction with applications on your desktop in all
cases. And on what is the browser running? Rrrrright, an OS.
And even if it's going to happen, MS will make a browser that works just
a little bit better compared to the competition. Remember, they replaced
Netscape in a very short time. MS has money, a lot of money.

with it, and then made it Open Source.
