    First one to promote free beer or have hot women on the advert will win.

    I can see Microsofts angle as: Hot women using the browser and finding all she needs using bing, searching for lingerie and the likes.

    the problem is that most people dont know that there is a choice, and if they are aware of the choice they cba changing from IE.

    We've got some billboards nearby with adverts for Chrome. Made me smile when I saw that.

    i did suggest firefox to someone saying "install this it will be faster when you browse the net", a couple of weeks later he said that it hadnt made any difference, it turned out he had installed it and continued to use IE assuming that the speedyness would rub off.....
