EC is to end the browser antitrust case with Microsoft, as reported by Larry Dignan here. The deal with Microsoft is for five years, Microsoft has to present a browser ballot screen. Microsoft to report to EC every six months and a review in two years time. Doesn’t the procedural sounds familiar? Yup. The monitoring regime seems to be modelled on the US AntiTrust settlement.
It will be interesting to see the detail. It looks one of the biggest complainant, Opera is happy with it.
