The US government has given the thumbs-up to Microsoft's search box plans for Vista, shrugging off concerns raised recently by Google.

While criticising Microsoft for its implementation of its existing antitrust accord, regulators appear satisfied with the software maker's plans for Windows Vista, including a new search box that is part of Internet Explorer 7.

When I first read of Google's claims of unfair practice on this one I must admit I found it a bit amusing. I'm pretty sure they're not too threatened by this. Beta versions of IE7 seemed to allow this change pretty easily.

Kind of makes you wonder whether someone should complain that Google is set as the default SE on rival browsers like FireFox. ;)
