Speakeasy DSL to Distribute Custom Firefox

By Staff Staff | Posted at 11:15 PM

Broadband ISP Speakeasy said it will offer its subscribers a version of the Mozilla Foundation's Firefox Web browser in hopes of appealing to a more tech-savvy crowd.

Speakeasy, which sells high-speed DSL (digital subscriber line) access, becomes the first Internet service provider to package Firefox, a free open-source browser, as part of its setup software for new customers. When people run Speakeasy's setup disc, Firefox and Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser will be downloaded onto their PC desktop.
