Windows The browser saga between Microsoft, the EU, and various browser makers just got a new chapter. We all know how the EU and Microsoft are in a legal tussle over the inclusion of Internet Explorer with Windows. Microsoft surprised everyone in June by announcing that Windows 7 would ship without Internet Explorer in Europe, a move it had hoped would silence the EU. The EU and Opera, however, were not impressed, and now Microsoft has caved in to the pressure.

For all this to be fair the information ( name, icon, download address ) should be placed in a public site where ALL OSes should go to verify wich browsers are available at installation time.

The information must be in xml format and the process must not need a web browser, it also must include the most downloaded browser first and the newcomers beside them with the posibility to choose any other not listed up front.
