European browser ballot does not seem to by working

In December 2009, Europe had settled an antitrust case against Microsoft by requiring the software giant to offer a browser ballot to provide consumers a choice for their internet experience. The Internet Explorer browser is unmatched in terms of market share. The ballot provided by the EU case, gives consumers a choice from the top 12 browsers.

The ballot seems to be having only a minor influence in the browser market. Although, the ballot has doubled Opera’s downloads, it has not seem to have a significant impact on consumer choice.  Currently, it seems that Google’s Chrome is doing the most damage to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.
