Microsoft Goes Its Own Way With WebRTC

Despite having no luck convincing the W3C WebRTC group to take notice of its proposal, Microsoft is moving ahead to implement it anyway. This is another example of Microsoft going it alone when it comes to browser standards, but the situation is actually quite complicated.

The internet was built on working code with standards following.

It's more work for developers, but it hasn't slowed down the industry. It's vastly better than bureaucrats writing standards with little thought to implementation that take over ten years to go from concept to agreement.

Competition and evolving standards are good.
Given the W3C's track record they are proof that standards derived from practice seem to be more efficient.
