FireFox: Countdown to v1.0!

Monday, October 25, 2004
After months of proving that it's already the best browser out there, even in pre-release, the countdown to the FireFox 1.0 release is on. The exact date is not yet official, but rumour has it that "Friday, November 19 - Sunday, November 21" is the window to watch!

To announce FireFox to those who have yet to embrace the browser of teh future, the open source Mozilla campaign is trying to raise enough funds for a full page open source funded advertisement in The New York Times! I think this is a fantastic idea, and have already pledged my (sensibly sutdent priced) $10. If you're interested, check out the details here. As part of your contribution, all those who donate have their names added to the advertisement; it's like being part of open source history!

Perth FireFox fans: there is a FireFox release party planned for Saturday, November 20th at Fast Eddy's in Northbridge. Full details here. The rest of the world has parties going on everywhere, so check here to find yours.

Get Firefox!

Update (11.55am, 25 Oct 04): According to Asa's comment, the official release date is actually November 9th! Woohoo!
