Wasn't the whole ballot thing about preserving the users choice? Then wtf is this:
Procedure to reproduce:
- choose to install your prefered browser, but not IE (actually, my prefered browser, SeaMonkey, is not in the list, even when it is the 6th most popular desktop browser in Europe... That's a big fail too.)
- close the ballot screen by clicking on "Choose later (Später auswählen)", because you couldn't find a "Close" button
- install the downloaded browser and set it as default
- restart your system
- see the ballot screen asking you to set IE as the default browser
Is it just me, or does this look like a violation of what Microsoft has signed in Brussels?
