Chapter 8. Taking Control of Web Integration > Choosing Your Browser Defaults

8.4. Choosing Your Browser Defaults

When Web integration was first released in Windows 98, I was asked by literally hundreds of Windows users if they'd still be able to use Netscape (or any other Internet programs for that matter) when they upgraded. Even more prevalent was the angst surrounding the conception that users wouldn't have any choice about the Internet integration—so much so that many people were reluctant to upgrade for that very reason. This is precisely the intention of the Internet integration—to suspend the myth that Microsoft software is the only choice.

The truth is that you do have a choice—not just for your default browser, but for all of the components that make up Internet integration and, indeed, all the components that make up your computer. The solutions in this chapter—and the rest of this book—will enable you to disable the options you don't want, as well as customize the options you do want.
