Google Advertises Firefox to IE Users

Most web developers agree that Firefox is a superior browser to Internet Explorer, but how do we get non-technical users to give it a try? Well… what if Google told them to?

Google Advertises Firefox to IE Users

“Firefox with Google Toolbar: tabbed browsing, safer surfing” reads the ad. Granted, Google has a vested interest in promoting its toolbar, but the fact that it chose to do so with the Firefox browser (rather than continuing to push the IE version) is a huge coup.
