Third parties? I wouldn't bet on you or I being able to easily do that...
maybe with the IEAK or something. But we'll probably find that MS will
license ISPs etc to ditribute modified versions of IE with the third party
tags added. In turn of course the ISPs will probably charge client
companies a fee to be added into the smart tags list.
Sound plausible? I could be way off, but I can't picture MS adding in any
features that aren't going to make it money.
