No? Did you even double post because you have clicked the submit button twice? In fact, my sister has an experience of buying two cinema tickets because she had clicked the button twice. X-)

I guess I've just met yet another (very old) bug... Yeah! Let's Rock 'n' Roll, baby!

The cover story of the February 2005 issue of Wired, entitled The Firefox Explosion, can now be read online. Perhap this is the most interesting image:
The article is fine, except that Firefox is sometimes misspelled as "FireFox"... Sigh...
That's really exciting! If interested, you should read also doron's article about this.
I guess what is missing now is probably server-side support, say, native support in PHP? :-P
Major changes to MoFo
It is really interesting...
- Ben Goodger, the Engineering Lead of Firefox, is now employed by Google.
- Mitchell Baker, Mozilla Foundation's President and employee of OSAF, will return to working on the Mozilla project full time.
- Stuart "pavlov" Parmenter, an Oracle employee, is now working on Mozilla Calendar.
I don't really get it. Why do some companies pay their employees to do things for MoFo? They won't have a say on the Mozilla projects because of the policy on Module Owners and Ownership. Maybe these companies are really foreseeing the future...
These are not the only cases:
IBM, Novell, Sun, Red Hat, Oracle and now Google have employees contributing to the Mozilla project -- some dedicated, some part time, and some as individual contributors. Having multiple companies offer jobs to key Mozilla figures has long been a part of our view of a successful project and we've traditionally worked closely with companies whose employees contribute to the Mozilla project..
Read more about the clarifications by Mitchell. And these are the news:
- Ben Goodger Going to Google
- Google snaps up top Firefox programmer
- Mitchell Baker Returning to Mozilla Full Time
- Firefox To Change Name Again
Before going to Google, Darin was employed by IBM to work on Mozilla, and before that, by Netscape/AOL.
What an interesting development ecosystem we have, where you can have three successive employers each interested in funding your work on Mozilla.

While Bugzilla is not a discussion forum, there has been active discussion about whether Mozilla should support BitTorrent as a file download mechanism.
Don't put unnecessary comment here. Maybe someone should make a BitTorrent browser plugin first? Yup, I mean plugin, not extension. That shouldn't be too hard. The source code of BitTorrent is available. Someone just need to port it to the NPAPI interface.
The downside of Blake Ross's success:
The downside of his success:All my computer science professors are expecting straight A's, even in classes that have nothing to do with the Internet,he said.
And have his appearances in major newspapers posted on his eponymous Web site helped with those California girls at school?
They're the ones that aren't impressed at all,he said with a laugh.

Probably the most funny love song I've ever heard... Introducing Numa Numa Song:
P.S. Thanks for the care from the blogger of TheCave, I'm not dead yet. ;-)
Firefox-ko shall conquer your Firefox:
P.S. You are not alone if you are an Opera fan! Recently the Japanese artists are making lots images of Øpera-tan, an elegant but approachable lady wearing opera gloves. She was created as a response to Lawrence Eng's recommendation on Opera branding.
I've just got a new spammer friend
That's really funny. (Sorry if you can't read Chinese)

If you are familar to the Mozilla community, you should have probably heard of Portable Firefox and Portable Thunderbird. Today mozilla.org just announced that these 2 wonderful applications will support an new open standard platform for USB drives, known as U3:
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – January 7th, 2005 – The Mozilla Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving choice and promoting innovation on the Internet, today announced that its Mozilla Firefox web browser and Mozilla Thunderbird e-mail client will support the new U3 standard for managing applications and data on USB flash drives, allowing people to easily carry, store and launch Mozilla software from any PC. As an industry consortium founded by SanDisk (NASDAQ: SNDK) and M-Systems (NASDAQ: FLSH) along with other industry leading software vendors and content providers, U3 looks to expand the USB Flash Drive technology market beyond storage by creating an open standard platform to attract a community of independent developers to build applications for U3 devices. Through Mozilla’s vibrant open source development community, an existing project to provide portable versions of Firefox and Thunderbird for USB flash drives, led by volunteer developers, will be extended to embrace this new standard.
