Microsoft to offer users choice of browser

Following a legal agreement with the European Competition Commission, Microsoft committed to letting Windows PC users across Europe install the web browser of their choice, rather than having Microsoft IE as a default.

A full scale role out will begin on March 1st via Windows Update and will offer users the opportunity to change their default browser to a list of randomly ordered options. Users will be presented with a list of leading browsers with a link to more information as well as a button to install. There will also be an option to "Select Later" to review the choice screen the next time the user logs on.

This update will arrive for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 customers. Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera are the alternative browsers that people will be offered.

For more information and screen shots of what you can expect, you can visit the Microsoft Blog.
