Windows 7: IBM is moving to Firefox as its default browser

IBM is moving to Firefox as its default browser

Quote:
I talk a lot about software in this blog but most of the discussion is at the personal level: I tried this, I experimented with that. I hardly ever talk about what I use for doing my IBM business and more rarely still do I talk about IBM’s internal policies about software use. This entry is different, and gives you a bit of a view inside the company.

Like many individuals and members of organizations, IBMers use their browsers a lot for conducting business. Our desktop and laptop software environments have some common applications but also software specific to do our various jobs. And these jobs are varied, as there are about 400,000 IBM employees around the world.

Some of the software we all use shouldn’t surprise you since we make it, such as Lotus Notes, Lotus Sametime, and Lotus Symphony.


We’re officially adding a new piece of software to the list of default common applications we expect employees to use, and that’s the Mozilla Firefox browser.

Reasonable decision.

Sometimes I wish IBM worked on improving it too. Maybe it would be as fast as Chrome.

I always loved Firefox over anything else but I must say, by using Chrome on my friend's computer, I must say that Chrome would be my second choice. But here's my hunches concerning Chrome...

1. All-In-One menu à la Internet Explorer
2. Options windows and etc opens in a tab. Prefer a Window.
3. Tabs on top of address bar
4. Don't like download manager.
