Web browser choice screen

Web browser choice screen

An earlier selection screen in Windows that enabled users to select a default browser from most of the available browsers on the market. Also known as the "ballot screen," it was accessed automatically from Internet Explorer in Windows computers sold in Europe as part of a 2009 settlement in the European Union/Microsoft antitrust case. However, it was also a useful Web page for Windows users to learn about other browsers and install them.


Some of the Choices
Users could select a popular browser such as Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Opera, but also from lesser-known browsers such as these. The choices were updated periodically.
