Some time ago Mozilla CEO complained about evil Apple Software Update, where Safari web browser was selected by default, “forcing” them to install it.
Guess what, now Mozilla does that.
Although it’s not the same way, but principle is the same. Checkbox is checked by default. Which one?
Exactly. “Use Firefox as my default web browser”.
Let’s say that I haven’t ever tried Firefox and would like to test it for a while. Quickly installing it and don’t notice that one checked. What happens? Possible buggy browser (not a final release) becomes my default web browser… Would you like that?
