    An important choice to make: your browser

    If you have a European installation of Windows, you may have recently seen the browser choice screen which prompts you to make a choice about the web browser you are using. This is now a requirement from the European Commission, who arrived at a resolution with Microsoft on a number of long standing competition law issues. This blog post provides more information on the agreement reached.

    If you would like information about the browser choice screen, the options available to you and other related information, please see the ‘What is the browser choice update?’ page.
