Favourite Book of Mozilla Verse Not Actually From The Book of Mozilla

Tuesday November 25th, 2003

In our last poll, we asked you to name your favourite verse of The Book of Mozilla, choosing from the selection that have been displayed when typing about:mozilla into the various Netscape and Mozilla versions over the years. 1,731 people responded, with 11% favouring the original The Book of Mozilla, 12:10, 18% going for The Book of Mozilla, 3:31 (Red Letter Edition) and 34% backing the latest The Book of Mozilla, 7:15. The highest proportion of you, 35%, opted for "Mozilla Rules!", the simple words that about:mozilla triggered in really old versions of Netscape (such as the 1994 vintage Netscape Navigator 1.0) before The Book of Mozilla Easter egg was even put in to the browser.

The new Mozilla website went live recently, the first major update since the project's launch in 1998. In our new poll, we want you to rate the new site on a traditional 1 to 10 scale (1 being the worst and 10 being the best). There's nothing more to it, so get voting and see how the site's ratings stack up so far.

Not that it matters, really, nor does it bother me

I have to ask, if it doesn't bother you why bring it up?

I really wish people would stop griping when other people use different, though equally valid, spellings for words. If someone prefers to use one common spelling over another, so what?

Personally, as someone who grew up in the US and Australia and now lives in Britain, I prefer and use a mix of the two (colour instead of color but program instead of programme for example) and I couldn't care less which spellings other people use.
