In a detailed blog post this week, the team developing Microsoft's new Windows 10 web browser detailed some of the security improvements it will usher in with the launch of Microsoft Edge.

In its antitrust arguments, Microsoft insisted that Internet Explorer was "integrated" into Windows as a core feature that couldn't be removed. They lost that argument decisively, which led, indirectly, to the EU's "browser choice screen." A variant of that argument resulted in bizarre products like the K and KN versions of Windows. Those SKUs, which had Windows Media Player removed, were produced at great cost by Microsoft, and as far as I can tell they were never purchased by an actual customer.

But one small subhead, buried in the middle of the post, leaped out at me and inspired flashbacks to the contentious U.S. v. Microsoft antitrust trial of the late 1990s.
