Firefox Flicks

If your not doing so already, you may want to keep an eye on the Firefox Flicks Backstage blog. There’s a lot of cool stuff going on there and really interesting posts. I saw 3 of the flicks so far and they are awesome. Some real talent is taking part in this. Definitely worth a […]

100,000,000 Downloads

100,000,000 downloads. That’s almost 1/3 of the US population. Here’s another cool stat: Countries Ranked by Population: 2005 ——————————————————– Rank Country Population ——————————————————– 1 China 1,306,313,812 2 India 1,080,264,388 3 United States 295,734,134 4 Indonesia 241,973,879 5 Brazil 186,112,794 6 Pakistan 162,419,946 7 Bangladesh 144,319,628 8 Russia 143,420,309 9 Nigeria 128,765,768 10 Japan 127,417,244 11 […]

SpreadFireFox.com – Epic Saga

Well, it’s not really a secret that despite Spreadfirefox.com’s great success, it hasn’t been firing on all pistons. There seem to be two camps, either people amazed by the project and its success and are blind to any shortcomings, and those who are quite the opposite. I’d like to look at a few things from […]

50 Million

As noted by Blake and Asa: 50,000,000 Got that? Well now it’s actually a little higher, and still growing. Amazing. Just a year ago, nobody outside the tech community knew what Firefox or Mozilla were. Now yesterday someone recognized my Firefox TShirt. What a difference just a few months can make. Those 50 million downloads […]

Kevin Smith and Open Source

Fellow Jersey Guy Kevin Smith aka Silent Bob has a WordPress powered blog and a distinct SpreadFirefox “Get Firefox” badge on the lower right. Apparently Silent Bob, isn’t so silent when you look at his site. One of my favorites just got a bit cooler in my book. Silent Bob rules. [Hat tip, Matthew Mullenweg]

Firefox Counter Plugin for Word Press

Matt Mullenweg just emailed me that he incorporated my changes for the firefox counter plugin. You can now get Thunderbird stats with the following code: < ?php firefox_count(‘thunderbird’);  ?> Another toy is still in the works (waiting on something still). Hopefully you’ll see something soon.

Where’s Rob: I’ve been omitted

Everyone loves those Where’s Waldo books. Well, if your good at them: I NEED YOUR HELP. That’s right. Apparently I’m either missing, or out of place in the Ad. There are reports of a few names not in alphabetical order, as well as a few inverted (Lastname Firstname). Your odds are about 1 in 10,000. […]

FIREFOX AD IS OUT: 2 Full Pages!

Sweet. 2X the glory, 2X the fun, 2X the exposure. Stinks being in school, if I was working in the city, and on the train, tomorrow would be a fun ride seeing all the NYT papers open on the ride in! Oh well… back to studying.

NY Times Ad

I originally heard it was looking like sometime towards the end of November… Anyone know when it’s set to happen? Has it been set?

The reviews come in…

CNET posted a review of Firefox 1.0, and of particular interest is this breakdown of their rating: Setup and interface 8 Features 9 Service and support 7 [Source: CNET @ 11/10/2004 9:20 AM EST ] I want to draw attention to “Service and Support”. That’s where open source still lacks. Firefox destroyed in marketing thus […]
