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.

Well since all this 'force them to let you choose' began largely as sour grapes from Opera, I want the option to not have the ballot screen pop up ;)

' Do you want to choose to have the choice ' ballot screen first, and perhaps a switch in the setup program for that.

Then lets have it delete any sign of the other browsers, their installers , programs they met on the way to the market that day, the ballot screen, its mum, her friends etc.

OH , and i want every other OS in the world that has the ablity to have more than one choice of browser to be forced under law to do the same. Its only fair ;)
