Happy Birthday Firefox!

Well… better late than never, i’n’it? Anyway, now’s a good time to look back:

It’s been great to see how Firefox really has spread throughout the world during it’s first year. For the second year, lets hope Firefox ends up on many many more computers. Maybe with a little help from Google… Can’t wait to see Firefox reach 25%, which I’d say is the next magical number. Feels good to know we’ve got Google on our side anyway. That can’t be a bad thing.

Hopefully the many improvements for Firefox 1.5 will make it even more attractive and spreadable.

I also can’t wait to see what they’ll conjure up at SpreadFirefox.com for us to do. Hopefully it’ll be something a little more useful than just taking a picture and uploading it… I want to be used! Let us pay for a TV-commercial, or collect money for some really wild and media-attractingly crazy event! The NYT ad was paid for by 10,000 people. SpreadFirefox now has more than 100,000 members. I do hope they don’t let the 1.5 launch just slip by, but I’ve got a hunch they have something up their sleve.

    The picture thing is more a fun, thankyou, celebratory thing, these are one off times birthdays and stuff. I’m on the SFx+ call to action team, the new site is going to be big, and enable so much more, and all kinds of projects and activities. -Kris Silver
