Happy Anniversary, Moz!!!

Friday March 31st, 2000

It was two years ago today that the original bits were pushed to the ftp servers, and Mozilla officially became Open Source. Two years later, and there's little left of that original distribution in the current Moz, but we're still quite fond of him. Don't forget, the anniversary party is next Thursday (April 6), and the Developer Meeting the next day!

Yes!!! Happy Anniversary, Mozilla!

What a ride! This also marks one year of active developement in the mozilla community for me.

How come two-thirds of the people and open-source browsers I know have their birthdays/anniversaries in March?

Happy 1st Anniversary Mozilla!


#3 And they heard a roar that shook the ground...

The night slides away, from east to west, letting the daylight shine again. The sun climbs over mountains, and lights the rubble, but the rubble is not there! Giant foot steps are all that it to be seen! They point north, and giant cracks form in the earth. The sun breaks fre of the horizon, and a deafening sound breaks free from the lungs of the Lizard. It is Mozilla, and it is angry! After it's long, long sleep, it is awake, larger than ever. Lounder, faster, more powerful than anything ever before seen! It now is bearing down on a small clearing to the Northwest!

It is Mozilla, it is angry, and a new Clash of the Titans is about to begin. The sleeping giant sits, in it's house, with pretty colored Windows, but it is unaware of it's coming doom. It speaks to it's servants and followers.

And the beast shall come forth surrounded by a roiling cloud of vengeance. The house of the unbelievers shall be razed and they shall be scorched to the earth. Their tags shall blink until the end of days.

Just a little note! GO MOZILLA!

Yeah! This is what we've all been waiting for. The crowds hear the growling, m$-hungry Mozilla taking it's first steps on the ground of ie.

Following the project since M5, I'm very proud to be grown into being a l10n contributor. Happy Anniversary to the lizard and the best wishes to fullfill the prophecy of "The Book Of Mozilla 12:10" which we hopefully all know. (about:mozilla --> "The beast shall come...", see above) This project is not simply about another browser, it's about THE browser, THE "web-machine" and THE XP-Toolkit of the future.

Mozilla rocks! boldly go where no browser has gone before...

Does anyone know about the page he is talking about . It isn't anything like the old one, but the owner,, says that it was ripped from the classic, but as far as I can tell, the classic contains the previous "cloud of vengeance" like from 12:10, where as this one contains 3:31 from the red letter edition.

My question is, who is Mammon and who are his (or her) followers? Is this MS or IE? Mammon (which is the Judeo-Christian word for "money" and is generally used in the bible as an idol) isn't in the previous passage. However, mammon is close to the "enemy" of moz, if software has enemies. Of course, on the other hand, said enemy is pretty much free, so it's more of a lust for power than greed for money. Hmm, where might the rest of the book of mozilla be?

#7 Happy Anniversary
