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.

Both Australia and New Zealand use British spelling, at least for the most part, and peculiarly so in the Government and in schools.

It is British English that is taught in schools throughout Europe as well, so most people are more familiar with -u- and -s- spellings I should think.

Either way, does it really matter? Seldom will you hear the British complaining because a website is written in American English; why should it be any different in this instance, different only insomuch that the roles are reverse?
