What is this "Browser" you speak of?

Nice reality check over at kalsey.com that puts the audience for web design in perspective. It's called Why I don't recommend Firefox.
"Most Web users don't know what a browser is...

That blue "e" they click on the desktop isn't a browser, it's "The Internet..."

...or maybe it's "Yahoo" if that's what their home page is set to..."

Vocabulary is important. I've been using the computer long enough that I take it for granted that applications and documents are housed in "windows." But I once heard a user call them "boxes." At first, I had no idea what they were talking about, but it's a perfectly logical label if you've never heard them called anything else.
