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.

Mozilla should keep doing what it does best: Browsers. This kind of petty politics games won't make Firefox any better and doesn't even seem all that necessary. Firefox was able to gain a lot of marketshare in a very short time.

Up to a certain point, I can understand this kind of crap from Opera: they seem to be kind of rear-end-hurt because after coming up with pretty much every feature present in today's browsers, they still failed to grab a relevant piece of the desktop market.

I suppose that the next Ubuntu version will also come with a ballot screen right? Make sure you include Firefox, Opera, Konqueror, Arora, Epiphany, Dillo, lynx, Galeon, reconq, Midori...
