Senate Committee to Probe Microsoft Browser Accusations

Senate Judiciary Committee staffers plan to take a look at allegations that Microsoft has made it difficult for competing Web browsers to run on a certain version of Windows, an aide to Antitrust subcommittee Chairman Herb Kohl (D-Wis.) told The Hill. The Mozilla Foundation, which makes the Firefox browser, and Google have accused Microsoft of hindering their browsers' ability to run on Windows devices with ARM processors, which are popular in mobile phones.
