State Department Asks for Firefox

The US Department of State has an in-house reputation of always being behind the curve on technology. So it doesn't surprise me that at a town hall meeting with Secretary Clinton, the State Department employees are asking to use Firefox. Oddly enough, I got the link from the leftist Egyptian blogger Hossam al-Hamalawy.

So does this mean they're using Internet Explorer? Or some early version of Netscape? Mosaic?
