You might have heard that Mozilla launched a new viral campaign in the fight against boredom and Internet Explorer's dominance (of course). The company produced a music video, several websites and it seems that the campaign is increasing in momentum and popularity with every passing day.
The Fight Against Boredom website lists statistics that compare Internet Explorer users to Firefox users. There is no quote on the source of the statistics though.
They all speak in favor of Firefox users which of course is only natural if you consider who published the video.
Interesting non the less. The following stats were published on the site at the time of writing:
* 14% less likely to have sleeping disorders
* 67% more likely to go mountain biking
* 40% less likely to be widowed
* 53% more likely to go hiking

Update: The promo page is no longer available which leaves only the video above and the statistics that we have posted here in the article. We have removed the link as it does not make sense keeping it up anymore.
