Looks like Fire­fox is get­ting some much need­ed sup­port in their fight against Inter­net Explor­er.

IBM is encour­ag­ing its employ­ees to use Fire­fox, aid­ing the open-source Web browser’s quest to chip away at Microsoft’s Inter­net Explor­er. Fire­fox is already used by about 10 per­cent of IBM’s staff, or about 30,000 peo­ple. Start­ing Fri­day, IBM work­ers can down­load the brows­er from inter­nal servers and get sup­port from the company’s help desk staff.

And that doesn’t count all the employ­ees who will install it on their lap­tops and home com­put­ers or those who will install it on the com­put­ers of friends and fam­i­ly.
