Opera Software Last week, the European Commission announced that Microsoft is willing to implement a browser ballot screen in Windows so that users can select a browser to install when installing Windows or when setting up their OEM computer. While this makes Opera very happy, Opera would like to see Ubuntu and Apple offer such a ballot screen too.

There are some applications that specifically request IE. They don't use browser API, but execute iexplore.exe directly instead. Thus nothing can be done about them.

It is usually when the application embeds the trident web control (like Windows Help, Windows Update, Steam, or similar).
