#6 Why we will never use Firefox at work

We will never use Firefox at work for one simple reason: Internet Explorer has a better auto update facility - WindowsUpdate.

Until non-Microsoft vendors allow seamless automatic updates (i.e. with NO user interaction), the cost of maintaing a product such as Firefox is too expensive. Even if there is minimal user interaction ("just keep clicking next"), some users will get confused and call to ask what is going on.
