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.

They used to use their monopoly in this abusive way, but were stopped. Now OEMs can make any browser (or other software) default. My Dell (UK) Vista machine came with Firefox as default browser and Google Desktop as default search.
