Microsoft is rolling out as of today a Browser Choice Screen update to all Users in the European region. The update is in the Important/Critical update section so if you’ve chosen to have updates install automatically (default), this Choice Screen update will be installed automatically. I guess MS doesn’t want to face another fine for “forgetting” to activated Browser Choice on Win8 when it was in Beta.

Still I find this ridiculous in today’s browsers world. IE is no more the dominant force, there is enough competition, there was even rumors some weeks ago that Google’s Chrome has overtaken IE. So I guess its time for Mozilla and Opera to focus their whining on Google and leave IE alone. Its only in EU that you are forced to advertise the Wares of your Competitors. So when is this going to apply to Apple, they are dominant on the Mobile field, when can we expect browser choice screen on iPhone and iPad?
