Why Aren't Mozilla and Opera Vocal About Microsoft's EU Settlement Offer?

http://ostatic.com

Opponents of that proposal, including Mozilla and Opera, have criticized the fact that the ballot screen is found within Internet Explorer, which is still bundled with Windows, and the fact that any alternative browser must be downloaded, which many users will be too lazy to do.
