Win 8 Browser Choice

Microsoft Agrees to Modify Windows 8 Following EU Complaint

Microsoft announced Wednesday it will tweak the release of its forthcoming Windows 8 operating system to comply with the European Commission, which argues that in its current state, the software fails to offer customers a browser choice screen to let them "easily choose their preferred web browser."

I did not know that! I'm quite surprised considering it's just an enhanced front-end, but it's good that they included it. Did they also have Maxthon listed?

I used to use Maxthon a long time ago, it was a pretty good front end. That's until I discovered Avant, then Maxthon mysteriously went away. lol It just don't compare to Avant.
