Independent Status Reports
Monday September 6th, 2004By Brian King
There is an enormous push at the moment on the grassroots level in co-ordination with mozilla.org to increase the number of Firefox/Thunderbird downloads and get folks to switch from other browsers and email clients. This push includes one thousand reviews of Firefox on the download.com product listing page, compiling a list of 2000 sites that should have Get Firefox buttons but don't have them yet, and fortherecord — an attempt to recruit people to help Mozilla to get more press coverage. Some websites have sprung up to encourage and inform users on making the switch. All don't focus exclusively on swithing to Mozilla clients, but they are included. See zillivisation, Browse Happy, Switch2Firefox and FirefoxIE. And of course, one of the best reasons for switching is the great choice and quality of extensions available. Enjoy these latest reports from some of the projects!
