One Thousand Reviews of Firefox

Thursday July 8th, 2004

Blake Ross and Asa Dotzler today kicked off a new community marketing program called One thousand reviews of Firefox. The hope is to have 1000 reviews of Firefox posted on Download.com's Firefox page. They encourage people to first vote honestly, then encourage their friends to also do so. Read more about the program on Asa's and Blake's weblogs.

if you really want to get the word out on the review thing then why not try to get a story on slashdot?

To be honest however i am not such a big fan of these "get the word out to the people one by one" campaigns especially since Firefox isn't 1.0 yet. A far better approach would be to go after developers to get them to fix bugs and add features-help make firefox to be so superior that everyone will have to use it. For example, there is one developer, who is working very hard on optimizing Firefox using hand coded assembler and his efforts are paying off-<http://www.24fun.com/down…nter/benchjs/benchjs.html> the top ten browsers are all optimized versions of firefox . So no, now isn't the time to go after Joe user who uses imesh (75 million downloads from download.com and #5 on the list!) and doesn't care that it's full of spyware junk. Go after the cream of the crop-the developers, web designers, academics and students, IT people, governments
