I expect that they go after Apple, Google, and anyone else that has an included browser without reminding the user that they have an option for another. Equal treatment under the law or the law is no longer worth following. They all should be punished.
But, again, this post bores from a lack of understanding a d knee jerk reaction ot the "bundled brower" aspect.
It's not about the fact that MS bundled IE. It's that MS bundled IE, which was fully functional, albeit inferior, whilst gimping other brwosers intentionally in order to make theirs more appealing and gain amrketshare. They also bribed and bullied OEM's into refusing third party apps on their devices.
Whereas, OSX coming with Safari, for example, isn't an issue, because Apple don't do any of those things. Any browser that passes Apple's restrictions has the ability to be as fully functional as Safari. Apple doesn't gimp competitors browsers in order to gain marketshare.
The law does apply to everyone else. No-one else is allowed to be abusive and belligerent either.
