EU: Microsoft to give users a choice of web browsers

Posted on Friday, July 24 2009 @ 22:07:16 CEST by

The European Commission announced Microsoft has decided to offer European buyers of Windows 7 a ballot screen so they can choose which browser they want to install:
It said Microsoft is suggesting that consumers pick a browser from several offered on a ballot screen in its new software release, Windows 7, which will go on sale Oct. 22.

Windows would still include Internet Explorer, but users would be able to disable it. Computer manufacturers could install other browsers, set them as default and disable Internet Explorer.

Regulators did not say if this was enough to settle antitrust action and allow the company to avoid new fines on top of the euro1.7 million that Microsoft already has paid in a series of battles with the EU executive.

"The Commission welcomes this proposal and will now investigate its practical effectiveness in terms of ensuring genuine consumer choice," they said.
