Mozilla Celebrates 'World Firefox Day'
The Mozilla Corporation celebrated "World Firefox Day" on July 15, three years after the formation of the Mozilla Foundation. As part of the festivities, the company is encouraging its fans to get one person to switch to the alternate Web browser, in exchange for being immortalized in the Firefox 2.0 source code.
Individuals will have until September 15 to encourage a friend to switch. Names will be displayed on a digital "Firefox Friends Wall" at Mozilla headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. In addition, the names will be accessible from within Firefox 2.0, due to launch in the fall, although the company has yet to decide the specifics.
