Microsoft(R) Firefox 2007 Professional
   The new award-winning browser from Microsoft is now faster, securer and quicker anything else on the market. Why use anything else?

   Enjoy a Better Web Experience
   MS Firefox 2007 delivers a dramatic boost in the download speeds of online pornography. By utilising a proprietary dynamic algorithm – anything that remotely resembles a tit or a boob will download up to 10 times faster. Fun at the speed of light!

   Stay Secure on the Web
   Firefox 2007's new TakeOver(TM) technology protects the Windows Kernel by automatically recognizing all McAfee and Symantec programs as viruses. Downloading has never been safer.
