Internet Explorer The internet has been abuzz the entire weekend about Microsoft supposedly forcing Internet Explorer 8 to be the default browser once you upgraded to it. Users reported that upon installing IE8, Microsoft's latest browser was automatically made the default one, without a notification. However, as it turns out, it's all been a bit overhyped.

RE[2]: Default Search

i think its google if your previous install was google or you had google products as express install coppies over your settings. I (one who is not one of Google's biggest fans) have no google software on my computers and none of my IE8 installs have google as the default search.

I suspected that might be the case. I just saw the posted screenshot, not the actial IE8. (I use Firefox.) Thanks for the clarification. ;)
