good one. that translates into us having to put up a bloody fight against IE
if we cannot change the icons.

People just do not seem to be comfortable trying a new application.
everything said and done, when it cam to corporate deployment, decision
makers still want to steer clear of bothering about it and take it for
granted that its risky (standardising/depoying a new application).

In my organisation though, i've seen a many-fold increase in end-users
clicking on the fox icon subconsciously than the blue icon. We are
"...taking back the web..." And that sums this up on a pleasant note :)
