Browser ballot not on tap for Asia

Opera Software, the chief complainant in the European Commission browser case against Microsoft, will not be pushing for a similar action in the Asia-Pacific region. The Mozilla Foundation's Open to Choice campaign will not be "explicitly promoted" in the region, either.

In an e-mail interview with ZDNet Asia, an Opera spokesperson said that though Opera is a member of the European Committee for Interoperable Systems (ECIS), it has "not taken a further decision" to lobby for browser choice in the Asia-Pacific region. The ECIS had last Tuesday released a statement (PDF) to urge antitrust agencies around the world to implement browser choice in their countries.

Firefox creator Mozilla is now running the Open to Choice campaign to increase awareness of browser choice among European users. Gen Kanai, director of Asia business development for Mozilla, told ZDNet Asia the campaign will be focused on the EU region, although it would not preclude future activities within Asia Pacific.
