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.

The logical problem i see with all the arguments here are that this list will only display on initial installations. Most of the scenarios discussed here were brain dead users picking from this top 10 list. One problem. The brain dead users WILL NEVER SEE THIS LIST! OEMs will continue to pick browser installations, and all will remain status quo except for the 5% or so of people capable of installing Windows. Quite frankly most of them won't be saying "durrr what's a browser."


This logical problem doesn't apply to all of the arguments here.

It doesn't apply to my own earlier suggestion, which was this: "IMO, it would be perfectly fine if IE were to ship with Windows IF IE were compliant with W3C standards."
