Bundled Firefox

Here’s a pleasant thought for web developers: one effect of Mozilla’s recent privatization may be deals with computer-makers to bundle Firefox with their systems.

Teney Takahashi, an analyst for the Radicati Group, a technology consulting firm in Palo Alto, agreed that creating a private Mozilla company may help with forging partnerships. Cutting deals with personal-computer manufacturers to ship desktops with Firefox included will probably be a priority, he said.

“It would be a huge win for them,” Takahashi said.

I imagine computer-manufacturers could do some creative things with custom Firefox extensions. For starters how about a diagnosis tool for interacting with tech support online?
