Browsing Community

· ·

If you know much about me, you know that I am big supporter of OSS and the people who develop it. Firefox is a prime example of a community that has built around the common goal of creating a great product for the good of the public. In this case, the amazing browser built by the fine folks at Mozilla has taken the simple idea of browsing the web and (re)turned it into an easy, user-friendly experience, making us reminisce about times when “spyware” was not yet a household word. The community that has built as a result of Mozilla’s choice software offerings is simply astounding. Just one look at Planet Mozilla’s blog amalgamation RSS feed unveils a team of hardworking men and women who volunteer their time and effort in order to make the internet a little bit more forgiving.

Why can’t more companies be like that?

If you’re still using IE, do yourself a favor. Get Firefox.
