Here are the options as I see them:
1) If you don't have a problem with EULAs in general:
1.1) Show the EULA as a popup window (what is currently implemented)
1.2) Show the EULA during the Ubuntu installation
1.3) Show a better popup explaining the EULA in plain English, and with a button to install an alternative browser
1.4) Show the EULA in a tab or in the default home page.
2) If you do oppose EULAs the only option is to have another browser installed by default. This browser could be:
2.4) An Ubuntu-branded version of Firefox
Option 1.1 is the worst possible choice in my opinion.
To reach a consensus, Canonical and the Ubuntu community have to decide
whether or not EULAs are acceptable. If they are, then Options 1.2 or
1.4 present a minimal amount of annoyance to the end user.
If EULAs are deemed unacceptable, then I vote for Option 2.4: the Ubuntu
brand is a strong one and the names "IceWeasel" or "abrowser" don't
particularly inspire much confidence. And the default home page can
contain a panel explaining that the Ubuntu browser is a rebranded
