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.

The goal is to ensure healthy competition, not to make it easy for small-fry competitors. Keep that in mind. The goal is to ensure healthy competition which benefits the citizens of the EU, not to help out underdog browser makers. (A point which Opera has consistently missed, BTW.)

What on earth are you going on about? Opera is the #3 browser globally:

And in Europe Opera is bigger than Safari and Chrome combined!
