Windows 7 European browser selection screen screenshot revealed

As part of an order from the European Commission over an antitrust suit, Microsoft has released some screenshots of their browser selection screen, set to be released in select Eurozone countries next week before a rollout across the continent.

After the European committee got angry that Internet Explorer was always the default Internet browser on WIndows-operated computers, they ordered Microsoft to give the people a choice. Power to the people. (Apparently that little box that pops up and asks if you want to make -insert browser name here- your default browser wasn't good enough.)

So, now Europeans will be treated to five browser options to pick from and select a default. Those five browsers would be Internet Explorer (obviously), Safari, Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome. Users should also be able to install any browser they choose on Windows OS computers as well.

The browser menu will be available via Windows Update to Windows users in the UK, France and Belgium first, and then it will be available all over Europe on March 1.
