    Zango is getting some attention today on Reddit for their toolbar install doublespeak;

    Technically they're at the mercy of the browser for the "Ok" and "Cancel" buttons. Is it legit to have the popup (let alone Zango)? That's another issue. But they don't have control over the button labels.

    but it should be click ok to Install and click cancel to cancel the install. The reason they have it the other way around is obvious

    Actually, not. What they're pulling is an "are you sure you want to leave this page" javascript warning. The ok button on those dialog boxes means "ok, I want to leave the page", where "cancel" means "I don't want to leave". The customization of the message is limited to the message, not to the buttons.

    I don't agree with Zango overall, and don't support the use of the "are you sure you want to leave" popups, but my point is that they cannot customize the buttons.
