Microsoft to make changes to Web browser, group says

Microsoft to make changes to Web browser, group says: "Microsoft Corp., which this month was found to have infringed on a patented method for viewing Internet pages, will make changes to its Web browser software, according to the World Wide Web Consortium trade group.
The consortium, which counts Microsoft as a member, said the company will make changes 'very soon' to its Internet Explorer program that 'may affect a large number of existing Web pages.' The group made the claims in a statement on its Web site, citing conversations with unidentified Microsoft officials.
Microsoft spokesman Jim Desler said the company 'may take precautionary steps in response to the ruling.' He declined to say what those steps are and confirmed that Microsoft has talked to the consortium about the ruling."
