    A complaint has been filed to the European Commission accusing Microsoft of stifling competition by tying its browser to Windows.

    Opera Software said the close ties between Internet Explorer (IE) and Windows made it hard for rivals to be a serious choice for web users.

    Opera also said Microsoft flouted web standards, making it much harder for browsers to be interoperable.

    Microsoft said putting its browser in its operating system benefited users.
