It looks horrible. And it's not quite a 3rd party product: Google doesn't you to just download Firefox, you have to download Firefox + GT.

It's not pretty, but it's live. IE 5,5.5,6 It doesn't show with Avant in the user-agent, though.

I'm loving it!

More firefox users == more (standard) compliant websites == more choice == more innovation.

Yup, it's there.

Can't put their own products on the home page, but they can put someone else's. /snark

I have emailed philipp one like this .

Nah, I don't use IE, just used it to check if it was there.

I wonder what the click-through rate actually is on those ads. I really hate to see a cluttered Google homepage. That box reminds me of Yahoo tactics...

If you look at the picture on the spreadfirefox's website, there is three tabs open in firefox. The other two are microsoft's. Interesting. :)

Confirmed from Colorado, US (using Comcast Cable) – I saw this yesterday and wondered what was up.

BTW, haven't seen this mentioned yet ... but IMHO, a strong shot across Microsoft's bow in the browser wars ...
