>> Consumers/home users first

I'm not convinced that this is the right approach. Non-technical users have comfort with IE and will not change without significant effort. We are not in a good position to persuade them to learn how to install Firefox.

However. We are in a strong position to convince system administrators (*especially* at small/medium businesses) to force all of their users to use FF over IE. Once people have confort with FF at work, they will bring it home. Our best channel to the home is through our advocates: system administrators and techy sons/daughters.
