    This doesn't remind you of any massive 26 year long anti trust cases does it? You know when Microsoft was not bundling Netscape navigator with Windows.

    Apple doesn't even let you run your own browser on their platform you can wrap around theirs only.

    Ironically pressure may come from regulation or fear of regulation before apple does anything.

    Yeah, I wouldn't hold my breath on that though. It was only a European ruling that ended up tipping the boat on that IIRC?

    What's funny about that comparison is with the windows situation you were always still free to download and install another browser straight away manually, and that browser was 100% a different piece of software from IE.

    Whereas, here, as you pointed out - all the other browsers are just wrappers. So it's really just the illusion of choice, therefore a much worse situation for consumers to be in.
