Challenge Issued to Extend Firefox 3.5

Extend Firefox 3.5 Coming back after a one year hiatus, the Extend Firefox contest is ready to make you into the next great Firefox extender?  A personal favorite of mine, the global developer contest for Firefox always brings in a lot of cool, unique and fun extensions for people like me to use and review.  

What are the prizes this time around?  Here are just a few:

  • Development gear, including a brand new 15" MacBook Pro
  • A license for the TextMate IDE by MacroMates
  • A license for the Versions SVN client by Sofa
  • A license for ExpanDrive by ExpanDrive
  • Firefox Ogio Metro Backpack stuffed with t-shirts, stickers, and more

Sure, I got passed up for being a judge again this year, but hey… can’t argue the fact they do have a nice selection of judges to choose from.

Last year’s contest received over 100 add-on submissions, which will be a hard record to beat.  However, with some hard work I think that record can be broken.  Extend Firefox 3.5 is open now and runs through October 2nd, 2009.  Good luck to all that enter!

Award Winning Shirt Design

firefox-shirt-contest

Big congratulations to Tracie Andrews, the winner of the Firefox 3 t-shirt design contest!  I have to say this wasn’t on my radar much (the contest that is) but this design is really awesome.  I would wear it, that is for sure!  If you want to see the other t-shirt designs – check them out at Flickr.  You have to join the group (yes, that even confused me) but there were a lot of cool designs to choose from.
