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.

This isn't taking it far enough.

Microsoft's new proposal:

If you choose IE, a dialog box appears that says: Warning: Use of Internet Explorer has been linked to Cancer. Press OK to continue, or Cancel to live.

Mozilla and Opera, of course, complained, saying the dialog didn't go far enough, that IE also causes Divorce and your children to abandon you to the worst nursing home they can afford.

I'm almost tempted to switch to IE just to spite Mozilla. Too bad Firefox is just so... useful.
