WordPerfect Office X3 to bundle Firefox

This news got me wondering has Firefox every been available “off the shelf”? Sure you could order a CD from Mozilla if you didn’t want to download Firefox (I guess if you are using dial-up the 5.6 MB download might take a bit too long), but that is not the same as going to your favorite software retailer and purchasing the product (in this case bundled in a suite) off the shelf. This is a whole new way to Spread Firefox!
