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.

That ballot concept is, in itself flawed. It's like saying that Candidate A is going to be your country's president. That's a done deal. It's been decided behind closed doors.


How exactly is ballot concept flawed? Your logic is flawed there - the ballot is there to choose, but you somehow are twisting it around into a situation where the choice has been made for the consumer. I don't quite understand what point you're trying to make. The consumer will be allowed to choose. That's not a done deal decided behind closed doors. Where are you getting that idea from?

I almost have to agree that the inclusion of Trident, in any case, is necessary. It is unfortunate. And it is wrong.


Uhh, why is it wrong for Microsoft to include a component of the OS, something that IE is built on, and something that no other browser is forced to use in any way shape or form? How exactly is that wrong?

Your comment makes absolutely no sense.
