Microsoft proposes letting users choose browser: EU

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft (MSFT.O) has offered to let users choose their own browser and 
| provide more interoperability information to third parties in a bid to 
| resolve two antitrust cases, EU regulators said on Friday.  
| The European Commission charged the U.S. software company on January 15 with 
| seeking to thwart rivals by bundling the company's Web browser with its 
| Windows PC operating system, thus harming innovation and reducing consumer 
| choice.

Microsoft open to Windows 7 browser 'ballot' in Europe

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft says it's willing to put a "ballot screen" into Windows 7 to let 
| European consumers choose from among several competing web browsers as the 
| default in the operating system. The concession is aimed at resolving an 
| antitrust complaint filed against the company in Europe by Opera Software 
| over the bundling of Internet Explorer in Windows.

Competition Spurs Innovation

,----[ Quote ]
| The opposite happens at the competition - Google Chrome wants to be an
| operating system. Actually it wants to be a browser geared to serve Google
| content, which happens to have an underlying operating system.  It just can’t
| do without that minor requirement and still take complete control of what a
| user can or can’t do outside of the browser. Even though Chrome OS is
| apparently going to use a Linux kernel, it’s really going to be a Browser OS.
| Or is the terminal coming back in a more advanced form?
