Chalk another one up to Microsoft in the battle of the browsers. Petroleum giant Chevron, until recently touted by Netscape as one of the leading users of its Navigator, is standardising on MS Internet Explorer for the majority of its 25,000 desktops.
The reason for the shift in allegiance is apparently commercial - IE comes free while Navigator costs $39 a copy for commercial businesses. But Chevron might do well to keep its options open. According to Gartner Group?s research director Bob Gill, users should avoid standardisation on any single browser for the next year, until the rapid pace of development and innovation in such products slows down, some time in 1998.
