State of the Firefox Facts

As some of you might have noticed, there were no new posts yesterday.  This is due to the fact that we are in the middle of a big server move for Firefox Facts.  No more cheapo hosting account for us.  We have gotten just about everything moved over to FastServers.net.  After the recent surge of popularity after the Firefox 3 release – I realized it was time I looked for help from the pros, and well FastServers.net is about as pro as you can get.

So all is going fine here, and if your not seeing this post now, you should within a couple of days.  Then again, if you can’t see this post how would you know your missing it?  Quantum theory aside, expect the same ol’ Firefox goodness, just at a new home.

What can you do to help?  Get your friends, family and even that creepy Internet Explorer loving neighbor of yours to come visit and also pass them our RSS subscription link too.  Did I also mention you can get e-mail updates too?

Over 3,000 Firefox Fans Can’t Be Wrong

Firefox Facts - Over 3,000 Served DailyI just realized this seconds ago, we broke the 3,000 subscriber mark with our RSS feed. Of course with my luck it’ll go down tomorrow – but hey, I’m going to celebrate the moment while I have it!

Now why did I say “we” and “our”? Well this site is as much mine as it is yours and without you it wouldn’t still be around today. Thank each and every one of you for subscribing and telling your friends about FirefoxFacts.com. Lets not stop now though.

Please keep sharing this resource with others and passing them along our subscription info page so they too will be able to celebrate with us!

Ad Free RSS Feed for Firefox Facts

I have decided to remove the FeedBurner ads from the Firefox Facts RSS feed. In all honesty it just wasn’t really returning enough of the green stuff to be worth it to me – and if it means I can get a few more subscribers and visitors to FirefoxFacts.com, then ditching them is well worth it.

So might be time to pass this URL to all your friends, amigos and buddies:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/firefoxfacts

Now ad free but still full of goodies!

Stealing Content is Bad

I got to go through the fun of getting a splog shut down this weekend because they were copying every post made here on Firefox Facts almost word for word and post for post.

I know a lot of folks have a problem with getting this done – so I have posted what I went through to get it done on my own personal blog (no splogging there!) to hopefully help others in need.

Direct Extension Linking?

Over the past few weeks I have noticed more than a few people have been E-mailing me and asking the same question. Why do I not directly link to Firefox extensions and themes via this Web site?

Well I could, there is no technical reason not to – the problem I have is what if these places change the location of the Firefox extensions? I am not going to be one who wants to go through and edit the hundreds of posts I have done thus far by hand. Not that I don’t love you folks enough to to it – it would just be a big waste of time for me.

So now that has been answered, let’s get back to talking about the fun things in Firefox!

New Firefox Facts Web Site

Come check out FirefoxFacts.com! I have redesigned the layout (mainly due to visitors giving me comments about what they would like to see changed) and I hope I have made everybody happy. As the Web site has grown in popularity – I have added a few things here and there to help folks keep up to date with everything posted here.

Feel free to subscribe to the RSS feed or signup to get daily E-mail reports of everything posted here. Feel like I missed a favorite link, extension or article? Make sure you submit it to me ASAP! Leave a personal link and your name – and I’ll post them as well. (I love giving credit where credit is due)

Also, don’t forget about the Firefox Facts eBook! It is the best free resource on Firefox you can find anywhere on the Internet.

Just a Few More Downloads

Well I am happy to say that we are less than 1,000 downloads away from the Firefox Facts eBook hitting the 20,000 downloads mark. Once again I’d like to thank Lockergnome for setting this whole project into motion for me.

I’d also like to thank each and every one of you for downloading it this many times. So tell your neighbor, tell your family, tell your dog to go download the best free eBook on Mozilla Firefox and lets get that download number even higher!

10,000 Downloads Later

I talked about hitting the milestone before, but now it has happened. The eBook, Firefox Facts has been downloaded over 10,000 times. This just goes to show you that when you put out a quality product and you price it for free, good things will happen. Of course, many thanks go out to Lockergnome and Gada.be. Asa’s mention of the eBook really helped put us over the 10,000 downloads mark, so I want to thank him for that as well.
