Naughty Firefox advocate

In my ardent push for Firefox as alternative internet browser, I did one naughty thing in our office.

I installed Firefox in one Windows workstation. I deleted the Internet Explorer desktop shortcut as well as that on the toolbar below. Then I renamed the desktop shortcut for Firefox into Internet Explorer. Well, I would have changed the icon to look like IE, but it would have been too politically motivated, if not too immoral, an act.

The staff in charge of the workstation was “deceived” to double-click on the Firefox shortcut, unaware that it belonged not to IE but to Firefox. Now, everybody can surf in the Internet using the workstation without unsolicited pop-ups and with relative security from spyware. Plus, aren’t multi-tabbed windows cool?
