Microsoft's European browser ballot goes live -- check it out!

How about this: the much talked-about browser ballot is a website! BrowserChoice.eu, to be precise -- check it out.

Hit F5 and watch the order randomize. Scroll right and check out the lesser-known browsers such as Sleipnir or Flock.

Finally, hit the Install or Tell me more buttons and be whisked off to the browser's website!

The analysis is interesting though -- check out the wording, with Firefox going with 'free and secure', while Opera brags about being the only browser with 'Opera Turbo Technology' (!!). Apparently Safari is the world's most innovative browser. I get the feeling the browsers were allowed to provide their own cheesy tagline...

Also note the contiguous background color between the BrowserChoice page and the Internet Explorer 8 website -- and while the other 'Install' links go to direct-download pages, IE8 tries to hook you with its feature set.
