"Microsoft is offering users the upfront option of making Internet Explorer 8 their default browser, or else staying with a rival browser, as part of a Patch Tuesday update. The new version of IE 8 comes as Microsoft finds itself losing browser market share to Firefox and other rivals, and negotiating with European antitrust officials over the inclusion of IE 8 in the upcoming Windows 7."
Didn't we always have the option of what is our default browser? What is so special about this update? I think we are all getting Internet Explorer 8 weather you want it or not.
Remember to do your Windows updates today!
