Firefox 4 — More Than a Great Browser

March 22nd, 2011

Firefox 4 is here! If you’re not using Firefox 4, go grab it and see how exciting the web can be.

Firefox is a great browser. Fast, sleek, and full of features that make the online life better — App Tabs, Panorama, Sync, Do Not Track, HTML 5 features, and more — all focused on respecting individuals.

Firefox is also much, much more than a great browser. Firefox is a big part of how we build a web that is fun, powerful, trustworthy, and fundamentally about empowering individuals to shape our own lives. Firefox is created by a non-profit community precisely to build these values into the fabric of the Internet. Firefox marries public benefit, non-profit goals with great product and technical advances.

Firefox is also a community; a community dedicated to building the web the way it should be. A community ensuring that technical excellence serves individual empowerment and public benefit.

Firefox represents a state of mind; a state of mind that asserts that people matter, that individuals can make a difference, that we can create as well as consume, that we can build a part of the Internet that belongs to all of us.

And of course, Firefox brings open source, cutting-edge technology and great user features to hundreds of millions of people in over 80 languages, based on openness, transparency, and empowering local communities. Check it out and get involved!

Open Letter to Mozilla Contributors in Japan

March 21st, 2011

Dear Chibi-San, Dear Mozilla Contributors, Dear Mozilla Japan

We are only a few hours away from launching Firefox 4 on our desktop platforms, and a few short days away from launching Firefox 4 on our mobile platforms.

I know that you have worked hard to get Mozilla ready for this day, and that you would be among our most excited and active participants were it not for the recent catastrophic events. You are part of our global launch and I hope that you know that we know this. Your role in Mozilla, in Firefox 4 and in the launch is not determined by the activities you engage in on launch day. Your role has been built over the years.

We’ll support whatever activities, if any, you think make sense for the launch. We’ll also keep looking for ways to support our community in Japan as the rebuilding process gets underway.
