According to TheRegister.co.uk, the European Commission may force PC users to choose between Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and other browsers when they set up a new machine.
Shareholders were also warned about a “significant” (probably more than 1 billion) fine by EU. I guess that money will fill up some holes in EU budget, especially during recession.
Microsoft also said that such a ruling might require that OEMs distribute browsers from the company’s rivals along with IE on new PCs.
Also, Microsoft might be required to disable “certain unspecified Internet Explorer software code” if the user chooses a competing browser.
I wonder how many web browsers there will be. 4 most popular or hundreds of them to avoid law suits from other web browser makers….
