In a not-so-shocking outburst, Mitchell Baker, chairman (or chairperson apparently) of Firefox maker, Mozilla has declaimed of Windows 7:
"Our initial review suggests this is a blatant use of the Windows operating system to change the market dynamics of browser usage.
"What we've seen so far is a clear example of why and how Microsoft's Windows monopoly damages competition in related products."
This comes about because the recently released free beta of the GUI automatically sets Internet Explorer as the default browser when you choose 'Express Install' even if you've previously used another browser. Microsoft points out that if you choose 'Custom Install' you can choose whichever browser you so wish.
Mozilla and Opera have responded by saying that 'Custom Install' is too complicated for most people... the battle rolls on.
