Internet Explorer Details are scarce at the moment, but testers familiar with the recently leaked Windows 7 build 7048 confirm that Internet Explorer 8 is now an optional component in Windows 7. This is most likely a direct consequence of the EU investigation into the bundling of IE. Still, a few questions remain.

I think that the idea is that if companies that make and sell systems want to install a different browser, they should be allowed to replace IE with Firefox, Opera, Chrome etc.

This would allow for example, Google to pay HP or Dell to replace IE with Chrome.

I dearly hope that this happens eventually, as that is the only way that IE is going to lose its majority market share in the near future.
