Pleasant surprise to see this today morning. I opened up my wordpress.com dashboard, and what do I see ? A notice that my firefox is out of date, and that I should upgrade. Nifty marketing I should say. Kudos WordPress and Firefox.
Just prior to Firefox 1.0 arriving, Mozilla’s Scott Collins, a veteran of Netscape and evangelist for the Mozilla team, said this to Linux.Ars:
“I have hope that we will be a mainstream browser and that people will use Mozilla. That’s the thing I learned to lust after as a programmer. It’s not my ability to solve one problem, to plow this field, but the ability to build a plow that every farmer uses. The ability to make something that touches not ten people, not a hundred people, not a thousand people but a hundred million people. I want Mozilla to be there again. IE is a browser with no soul. I want it to be Mozilla because I think that people who care deserve a browser with a soul.”
Beautiful. I am bowled over. That quote personifies passion. Passion to be the best!
Help firefox 3.0 set a world record for the largest number of downloads per day.
