Microsoft to start supporting Firefox?

I write posts here with boring regularity on Microsoft’s latest releases. They all follow a similar pattern – “I have just heard that Microsoft have just released [insert product name here] unfortunately it doesn’t work in Firefox/Mac”.

Now, however, I have acquired an unlikely ally in Robert Scoble – Microsoft’s chief blogger! Robert said in a post yesterday

if you want the most passionate people in society to use your stuff, you must support Firefox…. I won’t link (or say anything nice) to any Windows Live service that doesn’t support Firefox.

If the Microsoft development teams take note and start to release products with Firefox support, this will mean far better products, reviews and PR for Microsoft.

What will I have to complain about though!

UPDATE:
I see Damien and Dennis Howlett have responded to Robert’s post as well.

  1. Assuming this goes forward and becomes a larger part of overall R&D then MSFT will have taken an important step towards relegating the AvM/MvA argument to history.

  2. another storm in a tea cup, don’t u get bored, MS live team stated on their blog months ago that all live services would support firefox, yet it takes a couple of well known bloggers for you to actually bother to check your ideas, pathetic.

  3. windows live.com DOES work in firefox. In fact, that page loads significantly faster in firefox than in IE 7.
