No.  Commercial browsers behave this way for commercial reasons - Microsoft,
for instance, wants to encourage the sale of ASP, Visual Interdev, etc.
They also consider that security and privacy are less important than low
support costs.

Non-commercial browsers don't have to achieve any particular market share
or sell associated products, so they can afford to use best practice,
rather than commercially expedient practice.
