Microsoft tweaks IE

Microsoft today responded to its recent $521m legal defeat in the Eolas patent lawsuit with "modest" changes to Windows and Internet Explorer. Additionally the Redmond giant promised to come up with measures that web developers who use IE can take "to ameliorate or eliminate the impact of the ruling".

The ruling in favour of Chicago area firm Eolas centres on patents which the company registered almost a decade ago for technology that allows a browser to automatically run embedded applications on a remote web site without opening new windows.

Eolas - which stands for "Embedded Objects Linked Across Systems" and is also the Gaelic word for "Knowledge - is the exclusive licensee of a patent owned by the University of California. In the case, Eolas asserted that the patent covered one specific mechanism used by Web page authors to embed and automatically invoke interactive programs.
