The "ballot screen" was required to be developed by Microsoft as part of
the settlement of the anti-trust case with the EU.  Mozilla's Firefox ads
don't even begin to approach what Microsoft was doing.  We don't need a
"default-o-matic" program where people would end up choosing Firefox
anyway.  If we really wanted to provide a free alternative to Firefox, we'd
get Chromium working - it is really the only viable alternative.
