"They said browsers were dead. They said open source would never penetrate the mainstream. But you've never cared much for rules, have you? And now we're blazing a trail to 50 million downloads worldwide. As we turn open source into a household word and reassert the supremacy of simplicity, we are making wavesand starting fires."
Take a step back and think about what has happened in less than a year. This was a complete open source effort that took the world by storm. No paychecks, no egos of a corporate organization, none of that. Simply a vision to build the best consumer product possible and then give it away for free. Some other companies should take a cue from this effort....congratulations Firefox. Since November of last year, you've been my browser of choice....here's to many more downloads!
