speaking on my own behalf (and not for mozilla.org or the Mozilla Foundation or even those working on Mozilla that care about these things) I think that there's a a fairly big difference between "best viewed with Mozilla" and "Mozilla is a kickass browser, go get it" campaigns. I'm not opposed to either (and would enthusiastically support the latter) but I'm not sure how effective any "button" campaign would be.

Leaving aside the standards vs. Mozilla, "best viewed with," debate and speaking just of the second "Get Mozilla. It rocks." type button campaign, how effective do you think it would be and how widespread would it have to be before it started driving significant downloads? If 10,000 small home pages and weblogs linked to Mozilla downloads, would it matter? What about moving up to the next tier and getting some larger sites (which ones are candidates?) to link to Mozilla downloads. How many of them would you have to get before it had a significant impact on downloads?
