With Internet Explorer facing strong competition from Google and Mozilla, a browser ballot screen
that is no more, and a new OS on the horizon, Internet Explorer is in a place where it needs a big showing with Windows 10 to make sure that its market share remains ahead of the competition, neowin reported.
The browser ballot screen
was set as a requirement by the Commission after Microsoft was found to have breached European Union competition laws by bundling Internet Explorer browser with the Windows OS.
But the EEC is counting Apple Safari users on Apple operating systems to determine position and placement on the Windows browser ballot screen
Microsoft has revamped the browser ballot screen
demanded by European Union antitrust regulators and may get final approval as early as Dec.
Although Microsoft has not gotten the green light from EU antitrust regulators that the so-called browser ballot screen
scheme will be accepted, it was confident enough in its chances to back away from a Europe-only edition.
