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.

First, the idea that installing one browser removes another is silly.
Second, even if a checkbox were added to the ballot to say "Remove IE", nobody (that doesn't have a political axe to grind) is going to click it. Why would they? To save a few KB of disk space?
