    Really? Microsoft is going to show (in effect) all existing users of IE a page prompting them with an option to install a different browser.

    Now don't get me wrong, I'm sure a huge proportion of those users won't have a clue what a browser is, and will just click the internet logo that they always click on (before forgetting the page ever came up), but still.... that's more of a concession than I thought they were offering. I thought they were only talking about people buying new computers or after a fresh OS install.

    I like how this browser ballot is displayed inside Internet Explorer. Way to be fair.
