The Fox Tales

This is just something you don’t get anywhere else but Mozilla.

Spread Firefox has been a great place to meet and discuss ideas for spreading Firefox, but where do you brag once you’ve executed them? In honor of the 200 million milestone, we’re pleased to announce The Fox Tales, which tells the stories of other famous underdogs who were challenged, ridiculed and doubted and invites you to contribute to our own underdog story—the Firefox story.

I wish I could say that after breaking both my legs in a wrestling match against Triple H, Firefox fed me chicken noodle soup and taught me how to walk again. I can not. There are some interesting posts up there already though, so go check it out.

Unofficial Myspace Toolbar

Social networking is what the world is all about these days. If you launch anything that doesn’t have a social networking aspect to it, you are so back in 1999. Myspace.com is one of the industry leaders in the social networking revolution. With that said, wouldn’t you like a Firefox extension that would help you use Myspace.com a little better?

Firefox User Panel

I have joined, why haven’t you? Over at Spread Firefox, I noticed a link for folks to join the Firefox User Panel.

We’re now recruiting for the Firefox User Panel! This program will uncover how people interact with the Web through a series of short surveys. We’re looking for panelists from all walks of life and skill sets to participate – from students to retirees, from power users to novice users, and even people who don’t use Firefox.

New Digg, Old Style

Are you upset with the way Digg looks now at version 3? Well, with a little scripting and some CSS skills you can roll yourself back to a more pleasing version. Personally I like the new look, but I have seen others that do not. Here is the fix for your problem.

Rename Tabs

Maybe it has and maybe it has not happened to you. You are surfing along at a Web site and somebody walks into the room. Instead of turning around and trying to shove them out, you can just rename that open tab. How are you suppose to do that? Well first, you need to pick up the RenameTabs Firefox extension.

Firefox Reaches 200 Million Downloads

First things first, I have to say congrats to the folks over at Firefox. No mater how many folks out there might say that Firefox isn’t the browser for them for this reason or that reason, 200 million speaks volumes. It shows there has been and will be an audience for such a browser.

Here is what Asa Dotzler had to say via the SpreadFirefox.com Web site:

Let me start off by saying that YOU ALL ARE AMAZING! Today the Firefox download counter crossed the 200 million mark. We know that this number doesn’t represent actual users because this number includes both Firefox 1.0 and Firefox 1.5 (soon Firefox 2,) because not every one completes every download, and because not every download results in a new Firefox user.
