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.
Ever wanted to chat with folks that were looking at the same Web site you are currently visiting? Chatsum is a FREE add-on for your web browser that lets you chat with all the other Chatsum users that are looking at the same Web site as you.
Do you feel like you need a little more privacy while you are browsing? Maybe you just like to surf the Web mysteriously without knowing where you are going next. No mater what the reason is, I bet you can find a good reason to use the Page Title Eraser Firefox extension.

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.

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.
Swiftfox is an optimized build of Mozilla Firefox. Swiftfox has builds for both AMD and Intel processors. The 22.214.171.124 release is based on Firefox 126.96.36.199. The trunk is the most cutting edge of all the builds and is where Firefox 3 is being developed. Branch builds are built from a code base that has been tested much more than the trunk and therefore should be considered to be more stable. The 1.8 branch is where Mozilla develops Firefox 2 which will be the next major Firefox release.
