Dell UK Shipping Firefox on New PCs

Firefox developer Blake Ross has confirmed that Dell Computer's UK division is bundling the Firefox Web browser with new PCs. The news follows an October deal in which Hewlett-Packard agreed to offer Netscape as an option for the default browser on its computers.

Mozilla and Dell have not yet officially announced an agreement, and it's not clear whether Firefox will replace Internet Explorer or simply be offered in addition to Microsoft's browser. Dell's Asia Pacific group, meanwhile, says it has no plans to follow suit in offering Firefox to customers.
