There are too many variables in this mess. What if the user doesn't have an internet connection? What kind of royalties will the 'top' alternative browsers pay for space on the gold master (which will be outdated by the time they're installed)? Here's what I think, which I think would be logical;



Funniest thing I have read today.... If the user has no internet connection, why worry about the installed browser in the first place lol
