Here is an interesting idea...spyware that installs Firefox. I won't comment on it myself but I am curios as to what others would think if something like that started circulating around the net.

Spyware is supposed to be hidden. Somehow, I think people might notice if new browsers appear on their computers.

I would be opposed to it. I'm all for the spread of Firefox, but not by using dodgy methods. Besides the ethics of the matter, Firefox would get the reputation of being spyware itself.

I agree.

I think anyone that tried to do such a thing would find that somehow or other, he was being dealt with. It would be an extremely misguided effort and there are many people who would look for ways to stop it.
