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.

I think Mozilla's suggestions are good, but I would actually like it to be taken further.

Why not have the ballot, but only allow one browser to be installed initially.

Have a short description of the browsers offered and let the user decide from there. If they want to install more browsers they can.


Yes I think this is how a ballot should be held if there's going to be one at all. Let the user select which browser(s) they want to use and which they want to be their default browser and install only that / those browser(s). Would make all the rest moot...
