Windows 7: Finally Internet Explorer Browser becomes an Option

… Sounds crazy. With Windows 7 it would be possible to turn-off Internet Explorer 8, but not uninstall it — not yet.
So after 12 long years, with the help of the EU (European Union) Windows partially-divorces with one of its most controversial applications, Internet Explorer -IE. This naturally makes way for a more “open” or a less treacherous browser competition.

Opera, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox now have less chances of ending up like Netscape Navigator.

Preamble – Microsoft, that has been accused and found guilty for violating Antitrust Laws for making IE not only the default browser of Windows but also “untouchable”.

Here listed are the names of other features available to turn on or off
on Windows 7;
* Windows Media Player
* Windows Media Center
* Windows DVD Maker
* Internet Explorer 8
* Windows Search
* Handwriting Recognition (through the Tablet PC Components option)
* Windows Gadget Platform
* Fax and Scan
* XPS Viewer and Services (including the Virtual Print Driver)
