It must be nice to threaten legal action against anyone whose website doesn't display correctly in your browser. According to C|Net, Microsoft paid Opera a $12 million settlement to drop the issue of MSN's website not rendering correctly in the Opera browser. Granted, Microsoft is trying to clear their legal plate a bit, but still, in my opinion Opera doesn't deserve that money.

Over a year ago I mentioned that Opera had a right to be concerned with the problems with MSN's website. However, I had no idea that their whining would lead to them receiving a $12 million check.

The menu system over at Microsoft.com doesn't work in Firefox like it does in Internet Explorer. Maybe The Mozilla Foundation should threaten Microsoft with legal action to help them get closer to that $1 million they're after.

Am I the only one that's sickened by the abundance of lawsuit-happy idiots in the technology world?
