Microsoft [MSFT] and the European Union have come to an agreement over the bundling of Internet Explorer with Windows 7.
Microsoft will offer a choice of browsers to Windows 7 users in Europe which will include Internet Explorer, as well as other popular web browsers like Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari and Opera.
After installing Windows 7 users will be able to choose from a list of which web browser to install via a ‘Ballot Screen’, and the ballot screen will also be delivered to Windows XP and Windows Vista users via a Microsoft update.
Microsoft announced the ballot screen proposal back in July, and have since changed it to make it so competing browsers can be downloaded more quickly and easily, as well as a few other changes, which has obviously met the EU’s approval.
