Microsoft Fires Back at Google Over IE7 Complaint reports that Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s CEO, feels Google is asking for special treatment with the whole controversy on IE7 defaulting the search to MSN Search. Ballmer explains that if you configured IE to use Yahoo search, then when you upgrade to IE7, Yahoo will remain as the default. Only when you get a new computer, will the default search be MSN Search. Also, if you want to change that, the first option in the list is, since the search engines are sorted alphabetically. More food for thought off Danny’s last comment on this.
