Internet Explorer Yesterday, Microsoft dropped a bomb by announcing that all versions of Windows 7 released in Europe would ship without Internet Explorer pre-installed. This was in answer to the EU antitrust investigation currently under way regarding possible illegal bundling of Internet Explorer with Windows. The first reactions to this news are coming in, with Opera and the EU both lamenting the move.

Well If the EU actually understood what they are talking about it would well worth the salt. True tomorrow i come up with a browser called "EU nuts explorer" then what should Microsoft do. Recall all windows copy and then resupply the user base with a new build that says

"oh now "Choose your browser"
===================
Opeda
Fidefox
Kdome
Indarnut Explorer.
EU Nuts Explorer.
====================

The EU should just have asked microsoft to set to open a default web page on logon or a double click on the internet icon taking the user to a microsoft site showing options. Any new ones will show up there.
Like they have as default search engine options today on IE.

Go ahead biased guys and tell me that I am crazy to say this or am a MS fanboy. I use Vista and Firefox for extensive Java enabled sites/Safari 4 for my fun surfing (cos its fast)/IE (when i need custom activex)/Chrome when I am using Orkut or Gmail or some things casual. I personally am a fan of kmeleon.
