Makers of small web browsers want their programs to be given more prominence on Microsoft's browser choice screen.
Six software firms have complained to the EU saying many do not realise their programs were on offer.
To see all 12 web browsers, users must scroll to the right when viewing Microsoft's ballot screen.
"The final choice screen design leaves the vast majority of users unaware that there are more than five browsers to choose from," the six firms said in their petition.
The petition is signed by the makers of the Avant, Flock, Maxthon, Slim, Sleipnir and Green browsers. The makers of the other browser on offer, K-Meleon, did not sign it.

I think only the display of the first five browsers is changed randomly.
A user would have info overload if the rendering engine was mentioned. Joe user wouldn't know what it was.It's only one line of text. When Joe Public buys a computer, normally he will know whether the CPU is AMD or Intel, even if he doesn't know that they are different manufacturers rather than different models.
