Mozilla & Gecko clones Remember the very detailed proposal Microsoft submitted to the European Commission not too long ago about the browser ballot? This was quite the detailed proposal, covering just about every possible aspect of such a ballot screen. Responses were positive from within the EC, but now it seems that according to the Mozilla Foundation, the proposal is not good enough.

Icons and Links

I actually agree with Mozilla I think. If MS is going to do this, then they should remove the icons which I am guessing will say "Do you want to install IE" whenever a user accidentally clicks one... they can move the ability to install IE to the Software panel, add components.

As far as the links go, that could become very annoying as well. There are certain applications on OS X that will always try to open Apple Mail instead of whatever else I might use, and every once in awhile Safari over Firefox or Camino. Also I think synchronization is broken, I swear that even when I have it turned off for Mail, it still fires it up. But I digress.

I don't know this, but I would assume that there will be many more links like that with Windows. But I could very well be wrong.

Ah well.
