Michael Kaply has been writing a series of articles on how to deploy Firefox 2 within the Enterprise. I wrote last year that one of the difficulties of deploying Firefox and Thunderbird in the enterprise was the lack of tools Mozilla provided for deploying the software. I'm happy to say that Kaply's articles do a fairly good job on providing some solutions for those organizations that need to manage a large network of clients. Kaply's original intent is to cover the following topics regarding deployment of Firefox 2 within the enterprise:
- Building a custom version of Firefox
- Adding Enterprise specific customizations to Firefox
- Creating a Firefox installer
- Setting up your own update server to deploy Firefox patches
Currently most of his articles can be found on Kaply's blog under the "enterprise" category.
