Behind the Firefox Curtain

I just ran across a very cool entry over at Seth Bindernagel’s blog answering some “Q and A” about his work at Mozilla. Back in July 2006, Seth was brought into the Mozilla Corporation to help the key leaders and contributors of Mozilla think about how to run a community-giving program.

Internet Explorer 7 vs Firefox 2.0

The people at bit-tech.net give us yet another side by side comparison of the new Internet Explorer and Firefox 2.0. The entire article in question has a lot of interesting points, but the last paragraph left me a little shocked.

Save Granny, Get Firefox!

This has to be one of the most unique ways to spread Firefox that I have seen thus far. Save Granny is run by a group of Stanford students who have been working with the Mozilla Foundation to help spread Firefox.

Belive in the Power of Firefox

Now I will not lie, I am not really a man of faith. Apparently though, some Firefox users are. For these users that are a little more religious than me, I have for you the Faith Browser.

I want to thank Joe (sorry, no URL mentioned) for sending this link in to me. Fire up the Fox looks to create a starting point for anybody that might be new to the Firefox interface or ways of doing things. Extensions, themes, help, and more are all covered with a few examples for each. Now what I want to know is where is the link to the free Firefox Facts eBook?
