Windows The browser saga between Microsoft, the EU, and various browser makers just got a new chapter. We all know how the EU and Microsoft are in a legal tussle over the inclusion of Internet Explorer with Windows. Microsoft surprised everyone in June by announcing that Windows 7 would ship without Internet Explorer in Europe, a move it had hoped would silence the EU. The EU and Opera, however, were not impressed, and now Microsoft has caved in to the pressure.

That video totally rocks and proves that stringent anti-monopoly measures such as the ones announced by the EU Comission are very necessary.

The video is funny too and shows how Microsoft profits from the general confusion surrounding what a browser even is.

If I were google, I would be pushing chrome as hard as I could, because google is a brand that most people trust. Firefox is getting some recognition by word of mouth, but it´s taking its sweet time to materialize.
