I would call this a horrible stagnant world, not a perfect one.

Option A
If you want all browsers to behave the same, rewind to V1 of the first web browser and halt all innovation from there forward.  I think we'd all hate that instance if it were forced on us in 2012.

Option B
Pick 1 vendor today and scrap all rest.  Now you have a monopoly where all web browsers are behaving the same.  Seems like there's no financial incentive to innovate or invest in making that browser better.  Becomes option A with a little more advancement.

Option C
Pick 2 vendors and have them collaborate heavily and merge.  Repeat until you've produced option B.

Did you have another option in mind?
