Ghostzilla: The “Invisible Browser”
Here’s a neat use of Mozilla: Ghostzilla is a little app that creates a Mozilla window that looks exactly like whatever productivity app you happen to be using, so that surfing isn’t obvious to bosses who practice management-by-walking-around. It even comes on a little self-contained CD, so that you don’t leave incriminating evidence (cookies, favorites, etc.) behind on the PC. It doesn’t require any software installation, so it’s perfect for cubicle drones who don’t have the right to install software on their PCs. Neat hack!

I would have LOVED this when I was working at Wells Fargo. If you got caught surfing there, they would escort you out of the building (sans job) on the spot. That place was a torture chamber.
