Microsoft could offer multiple web browser options in Europe in Windows 7
Advertisement
#1
Microsoft has taken some drastic steps with their Windows 7 operating system to pacify the European Commission.

The company has now proposed a scenario where a user would get a ballot screen to pick the web browser he wants to install on his machine at the time of installation of the operating system.

The European Commission said: “Microsoft has proposed a consumer ballot screen as a solution to the pending antitrust case about the tying of Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser with Windows.”

Microsoft added: “We believe that if ultimately accepted, this proposal will fully address the European competition law issues relating to the inclusion of Internet Explorer in Windows and interoperability with our high-volume products.”

This plan could include rival browsers like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera Browser. Microsoft of course would have their own edition Internet Explorer.
