This could sound a bit crazy. But any traveller might be able to help.
Firefox is a cool and useful browser. No doubt about it. It's becoming hard for me to go back using IE6 or IE5 while in any airline lounge (or public Internet kiosk). I don't think much of them have updated their IE version, not to say installing Firefox. However, since most airline lounge offers high-speed connection, it might be a good idea to spend sometimes downloading Fx2.exe file, for yourself and for the benefit of other travellers...sort of.
So here's what I just did. I was in the Thai Airway Silk Lounge inside the new Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok. I found an available desktop PC, and did my first download. This first one was not successful since the wireless connection of this desktop PC disconnected. I then did the second download. It was perfect. I installed the software right after, but a pop-up window informed me that I do not have the access to the "Program" directory. That's ok. I installed directly under "C:".
The Firefox 2 launched perfectly after installation, with Google search in Thai. I realized that the "Latest News" RSS service in this region in provided by BBC (where in China, Japan, Taiwan, and Korea, it is provided by Y!).
One more thing, for blogger especially, before your wrap up your work and ready for boarding, you may wish to bookmark the RSS feed of your blog in the browser. "Blog marketing", yup, you can say that.
I sat in Thai Airway Lounge about 2 hours and the Internet area has been always packed with people. I do not get the chance to do this one by one. I assume that I can leave this job to others.
