OK, I never was presented that option because I have an MSDN subscription download of Windows 7 that was issued before the EU-version became available. So I just now got a view of the screenshot with the browser selection where everybody and their grandma presents a brief description of their browser. Here's my interpretation of that text for the top 5 browsers listed:


Google Chrome
A fast new browser.
Made for everyone [who loves to use Google and only Google. What? There's a web beyond Google?!]

Firefox
Your online security is Firefox's top priority [so don't blame US when it keeps crashing and eating up your resources].
Firefox is free and made to help you get the most out of the web [if we ever get it working with the other 90% of web pages].

Safari
Safari for Windows from Apple, the world's most innovative browser [because WE just discovered the inernet and it's all new to us].

Internet Explorer 8
The world's most widely used browser [because we could pre-install it up until now], IE8 makes your web experience safe and easier than ever [compared to our own previous versions of course]

Opera
The powerful and easy to use web browser [honestly, we couldn't think of any real arguments].
Try the only browser with Opera Turbo technology [Yeah, nobody else wanted to license it, whatever it is] and speed up your internet connection [by NOT loading all the nifty stuff that we don't support].


Honestly... the people at the EU who decided that presenting that mandatory selection dialog upon OS installation is a good idea should do the tech support that comes in. And I for one want to install Internet Explorer 8 on Google's Chrome OS and remove the Chrome browser! Hey, same right for all!

Chrome: Because we, Google, ownz all your bytes.
Firefox: Because there's no computer with less then 640kbGb of RAM around.
Safari: Because you don't have to use what we don't think is cool.
Internet Explorer: Because we like to remind you five times a daw how imprtant updates are.
Opera: Because we like drama.

I keep hearing about it... rumor has it it's going to be a minimal OS (linux based as far as I have heard) with the chrome browser on top of it as the one and only application. Which is what MS tried to do several years ago with Windows and IE (look up "active desktop") and I hope Google fails equally. I don't even want to waste time looking up more detailed information about it - would take a day probably to sort out rumor from fact :/
