Mozilla Becoming More Popular at University of Houston

UPDATE! Boris writes in with some details about Mozilla support at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology: "I saw the article about University of Houston, and figured folks may be interested in what other universities are doing... So here's the official take on Mozilla at MIT. Note the 'mozilla has recently been made the default Web browser for Athena Linux and Sun machines' part; Athena is the system of publicly available computers on campus.

"They've also been considering making the switch to Mozilla as the major supported mail client but ran into some issues with it, it seems.

"Finally, we made the math department's tip of the week!"

Are there any other Mozilla-friendly universities out there? Post your comments to this article.

Durham University (England) where I attend have recently changed over to Netscape 7 for the default browser. Users loading the installed Internet Explorer are directed to a seperate home page stating that IE is not supported.

This may not seem so significant, but 10000 gecko users should help sway 'professional' web designers towards writing gecko compatible pages.
