Like everyone campaigning, we're looking to bring browsers in line with the standard, and give people an opportunity to get away from the built in browser that comes with Windows.

Tekfix Computing Solutions, announced today, both the opening of it's new online store (http://shop.tekfix.com.au/), and the backing of Google and The Mozilla Foundation's campaign to switch Internet users to the Mozilla FireFox Internet browser; the business offering a special discount on products purchased specifically through the Mozilla browser. "Like everyone campaigning, we're looking to bring browsers in line with the standard, and give people an opportunity to get away from the built in browser that comes with Windows." said Tony Schirmer, Marketing Manager for Tekfix Computing Solutions. "In my experience Mozilla has provided more security and an overall better experience when browsing the Internet. We want to reward people who take the next step and try the browser for themselves."

The 5% discount is only available when the FireFox browser is detected upon the coupon code entry, leaving all other shoppers, with other Internet browsers with the full fee. This almost drastic approach to attract consumers to try the browser is one that's only been rivaled by Google, which introduced paid referrals into it's adsense system, allowing any adsense publisher to earn money from referring users to the Mozilla browser, provided it contains the Google Toolbar.

The launch of Tekfix Computing Solution's online store, marks both the end of a long setup process conducted by it's two twenty year old owners, and the start of a 6 month marketing campaign focused toward the online computer hardware communities. The young entrepreneurs, Tony Schirmer and Rowan Volker, founded the business in 2005, and are about to celebrate the 2 year anniversary of the business.

By providing computer hardware and computer related products such as software, accessories, server equipment to the gaming and business communities, Tekfix Computing Solutions is looking to create a comfortable and reliable shopping environment that's simple and easy to use. So that anyone, even international consumers can use the service.

The non-profit organisation, The Mozilla Foundation, has recently released the latest version of the browser available for testing, the Firefox 3 Beta.
