South by Southwest is best known for its music and film festivals, but as you might be aware of, there's also a pretty serious Interactive presence here in Austin.

Over the next few days we will be interviewing movers and shakers from some of the coolest, most-popular, and new companies in the Internet world.

This morning we present an interview with Mary Colvig from the Marketing Team of Mozilla who bring you Firefox, LAist's web browser of choice. Please excuse the ambient noise, the tradeshow floor was extremely loud as it is one of the most popular areas of the SXSWi experience.

Imagine that, a conference where people actually attend the panels and go to the tradeshow area - and party at night! You might call the attendees geeks, but these geeks are spending very little time in their hotel rooms, and most of their days and nights working hard and playing hard.

Anyways, if you haven't tried Firefox you're insane. It's far far far superior to Internet Exploder and if you know a few things about the web and computers you can customize your browser in a variety of excellent ways using their free Add-ons developed by cool people from around the world.
