IE copies Mozilla?

It seems like the next version of Internet Explorer, the one that's gonna get shipped with the next version of Windows (currently codenames Longhorn), is getting some of the features that we have in Mozilla:
- Add-ons
Small programs that extends IE.
- Blok popups
Why they didn't introduce this before is beyond me.

I'd rather hav this, then software patents... Also mozilla didn't "invent" all of the features it has, wasn't Opera the first one introduce browser tabs, mouse gestures,..? Actually this is what makes software great competion can copy and improve features.....

I didn't mean copy in the illegal sense. Mozilla is also inspired from different other products. Everybody does that.

Opera doesn't have tabs, it's an MDI program

whether it was first or not, I don't know, since I've been following Mozilla more closely than Opera : )
