The browser monopoly vs The browser wars

You might think the browser wars was bad... But a monopoly is worse!

The time before the browser monopoly is often called "the browser wars" where browsers actually competed who could make the best browser for users and developers.
In "the browser wars" Opera gave us CSS, Netscape gave us JavaScript, Internet Explorer gave us AJAX and a ton of other proprietary stuff.
At some point we got fonts, and Chrome gave us better JavaScript performance.
This happened because the browsers where competing against each other. It should not be called "the browser wars" (but I can't find a better name).

To be continued...
