Nokia's challenge? Sell more mobile phones. To do that, it needed to beat the competition on features. And to do that, it turned to open source. Hold on, you may be saying, that doesn't sound right.

Latest Microsoft Oppression

Msn.com updated to filter mouse click events such that right-clicking functionality is only provided by IE. Firefox user's attempt to open links in another tab find themselves SOL as a right click attempt simply behaves as a left click thereby proceeding to the Msn site in the current window.
