Firefox adoption in Ghana
When I was in Ghana last November, I had trouble accessing my gmail because all of the computers in the cyber cafe near my hotel are running Windows 2000 without the updates for Internet Explorer 6.0 (still using 5.0 or 5.5). At that time, gmail couldn't be used by these older browsers. (Now gmail has a version for older browsers so these machines can be used as-is.) What I had taken to do was run windows update on every different machine I used, upgrading them to 6.0. This time in the same cafe, I'm finding Firefox installed on about half of the machines I've used. It needs to be upgraded, but it's here (and upgrading is easy). Woo hoo!
