The micoshaft browser has been paid for by payees that have bought the os. Its anti-trust violation to argue that therefore the browser should be given away free gratis.

Its sheer stupidity on behalf of regulators, or they have so effectively bribed them that they don't even function as a legal enbreasty any more.
