Firefox love from someone new

Last week, I clean installed Windows XP for someone’s home computer. It wasn’t a top-of-the-line computer, but it wasn’t old either. I made sure it was updated, then installed Firefox, OpenOffice, AVG Anti-virus Free, and SpywareBlaster.

She came in today asking for the website address for Firefox, because she was extremely pleased with how much faster Firefox felt compared to Internet Explorer. She even told a friend about it!

I’m pretty sure part of it had to do with the fact that the system was fresh, but I felt I had to share this – Firefox just isn’t mainstream.
