Firefox Does It Again

You wanted it be good, and it turned out to be the best. You wanted it to be cheap, and it turned out to be free. You wanted it be easy to use, and it turned out to challenge the biggest players in the market. It has defied all the traditional opinions held of open source software. And how!

Then came the Firefox NY Ad Campaign. They targetted collections from about 2,500 individuals and businesses to support a first-ever full-page advertisement in a major daily newspaper created and paid for by the open-source community. At the moment, they have received 9,613 names in that list of contributors.

It seems like everything Firefox does is now historic! I'm waiting for the official Firefox 1.0 Final Release launch. I might even go for one of their launch parties here in Mumbai.
