Hey, why all the digressions into whether Firebird/Thunderbird is better that Microsoft-ware? Aren't we supposed to concentrate on news about institutions changing over to 'Zilla-powered stuff? If we can't be as focused as the opposition, we'll never triumph and remain discordant voices in the wilderness (or cyberspace if you so prefer :)

Yes, my company has switched over to Firefox for Browsing (Windows & Linux), and Thunderbird for Email after we found these apps by virtue of being non-Microsoft developed don't receive the same explicit Kernel use permissions that IE and the Outlook family do! Users are happy, the interface is pretty good (could be improved more tho). Firefox has a speedy render engine; uncluttered by post-hole patches. And Thunderbird can do it all.

We still have to use IE to test solutions because most of our clients still use it! But pages are checked in a custom-built (and locked-down) localhost setup.
