Web browser Opera says that downloads of its software have doubled since Microsoft introduced browser choice to Windows users on 1 March.
A screen offering users the chance to switch browser is rolling out across Europe as part of a Windows update.
Opera says that in Poland 77% of downloads have come from the screen.
The number of copies downloaded in Poland were up by 328% on normal levels in the three days Opera analysed, between 12 and 14 March.
Now if the EU would just expand the policy to include Email and Office, also bundled on the PC
Email and Office are not bundled into PCs by Microsoft. That's the choice of the vendor to add for the convenience sake of their customers.
I have no idea why they had to wait for Microsoft to release that "switch browser" idea. If they wanted Opera, couldn't they use it even before Microsoft asked that?

OK, all jokes aside, I don't want to see download stats. I want to see usage stats!
