+ - IBM Makes Firefox Its Corporate Broswer-> 1

e9th (652576) writes "Ars Technica reports that IBM has adopted Firefox as its company-wide browser.It will be installed on all new employee computers, and all 400,000 employees will be encouraged to use it. Speaking of encouraging Firefox use, IBM VP Bob Sutor blogs, 'We will continue to strongly encourage our vendors who have browser-based software to fully support Firefox.' I hope this means that if IBM can't navigate a vendor's site with Firefox, they'll just look elsewhere."

    Admittedly, this scores some shock value. Despite IBM seeing Microsoft as a competitor (which it is on many fronts), of all the alternatives to IE to turn to - Firefox??? Google Chrome, I could see. I just don't see how Firefox fits into IBM's strategy more than Chrome or, for that matter, IE. (Mind you I might not be as up-to-date as I oughtta be on where IBM is headed....)

Nobody's gonna believe that computers are intelligent until they start coming in late and lying about it.
