Trade Union Website Promotes Mozilla Firebird
Friday November 28th, 2003
Eric Lee writes: "The international trade union news service LabourStart has begun promoting Mozilla Firebird as the best browser for trade unionists. LabourStart's website has more than 125,000 unique visitors per month, and the site's news is syndicated to nearly 520 other trade union websites. LabourStart is published in 11 languages and is maintained by a network of over 220 volunteer correspondents.
"Mozilla Firebird is being promoted both as a better alternative to Microsoft Internet Explorer and also to encourage the adoption of the Mycroft plug-in which allows searching of LabourStart's database. This is the first time that a major trade union website has suggested the use of Mozilla Firebird to its readers but LabourStart has often pioneered this kind of thing in the past, including a very successful promotion two years ago of a customized version of Opera. Next week, Mozilla Firebird will receive an additional boost when LabourStart's 16,200 email subscribers are invited to download the software."

I think you misunderstood the intention of his post. I don't think he meant anything like that, he was just saying that he doesn't see how Firebird is any better for a trade unionist than it is for a regular user so it seems odd that they're saying it would be excellent for trade unionists.
