Mozilla & Gecko clones Recently it became known that the European Union is charging Microsoft with anticompetitive behaviour concerning its Internet Explorer web browser. The EU is considering forcing OEMs to offer consumers a choice of browser. Opera responded quite positively to these events, and now Mozilla has responded as well: they fully support the EU.

I hate Microsoft but this is unfair. Why the hell does it matter if they ship IE together with Windows? If you do not like IE then switch browser, if you do not like Windows then switch os. If you do not like any os then write your own. If you lack knowhow then you probably are better of paying for the software you use. Microsoft hasn't forced you into anything. You are in control.

Most people I ask, think the big blue E "is" the internet. That is the danger, sheeple do not know, nor do they want or in fact need to know of alternatives. Sheeple will use what they know or what they are given to use.

The arrogance.

As if you are an informed consumer and user in every product field you buy in.
