Microsoft to Bundle Firefox and Chrome with Windows?

Filed under
Microsoft

In its effort to detangle itself from the ongoing proceedings of the European Union antitrust case, it seems Microsoft is offering to include rival web browsers in the Windows OS. Revealed in a statement by the European Commission, Microsoft offered to give consumers a choice of browser installation through a browser ballot screen. New computer owners running Windows may get a chance to choose their browsers form a variety of software makers.

Upon the EU's acceptance of the proposal, Microsoft will begin shipping versions of Windows with the ballot screen throughout Europe. The antitrust case first came about after rival browser Opera filed a complaint on the Redmond giant's bundling of Explorer with Windows. RWW has already covered Microsoft's attempts to make amends on the case; however, this new agreement will have even larger affects on the industry.
