The switch is on for many people to Mozilla. I wonder if many people who have never tried Mozilla, or for that matter any browser other than IE, mistakenly believe that too many web pages will not work if you use Mozilla, so they continue with IE even with the regular security alerts? It is also good that TechTV is demonstrating how easy it is to move bookmarks from IE to Mozilla. If bookmarks can be easily moved to Mozilla, more people may give it a try.

It is good that a mainstream media outlet such as TechTV is highlighting Mozilla. Many who have never tried Mozilla believe it to be buggy and unreliable. TechTV helps to displell these myths. When TechTV recomends switching to Mozilla, users might download and try it for themselves,based on TechTV's recomendation ehrn previously they would not have considered anything but IE. Mozilla's useage can only increase as more mainstream sites recomend Mozilla over IE.
