IBM has announced that both the Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer browsers will be available on Aptiva PCs shipping Windows 98, with the default ISP being IBM's own Internet Connection Service. Following in the wake of Gateway and NEC (see PC Week, 2 June), both of which plan to offer the rival browsers, IBM is exploiting Microsoft's commitment not to challenge other vendors that customise the desktop to include browsers other than IE, soon to ship as an integrated feature of the Windows 98 operating system. However, IBM UK said the announcement only applies to the US at present, and could not say when UK users may expect to benefit.
