I For One Welcome Our New Version 2 Overlords

World Firefox DayYesterday, my copy of Firefox updated itself (to version no less) and when it restarted I was reminded about the upcoming World Firefox Day. I’d read about this on Slashdot a while back and just forgot about it.

I checked out the site and immediately thought of my colleage, Kevin. The $ORGANISATION’s a Microsoft shop through and through and Kev, like the bulk of the staff here, sticks to the web-browser that came bundled with the OS. I’ve been using Firefox for over 2 years now and have never looked back: it’s a memory hog, yes, but it’s sooo extendable and having tabbed browsing has changed my online existence no end.

So, if by 15th September Kev downloads and installs firefox we’ll get a mention on the “Firefox Friends Wall” and in Firefox 2.

It all sounds like a good bit of craic but I’m not holding my breath!
