IBM officially recommends Firefox

Someone over on 6club was saying that large corps can't use FF for one reason or another, but this should be a significant indication that they can. IBM is now recommending that its 330,000 employees use Firefox over MSIE. It has now put it up for download on internal company servers, and will support it through the help desk.

I switched to firefox like 3 or 4 months ago.........I find it runs far slower than IE on my machine. Not to mention this lil quirk with mine where I get a blinking cursor if I click anywhere on the page. I'd switch back if I weren't so damn lazy.
