IBM adviseert gebruik van Firefox
‘Big Blue’ spoort haar 330.000 werknemers aan om Firefox te gebruiken, in plaats van Internet Explorer.
“This is a real good example of walking the talk when it comes it comes to open standards and open source,” Truskowski said.
Because Firefox is based on industry standards – as opposed to proprietary technology – IBM has some “comfort” that it will interoperate well with third-party products, Truskowski said. By contrast, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer uses some proprietary technology, such as ActiveX for running programs within a browser.
