Eleven million downloads in just over a month, notices in high profile media and, oh yeah, a quite nice two-page spread in the New York Times put together entirely through grass roots effort. It hasn’t been a bad few weeks for Mozilla Firefox.
Even though the folks at Mozilla HQ are well paid, it is gratifying to see that small contingent of folks (less than 20) marshaling a massive volunteer development effort so effectively. An effort that produces software on par with or better than that produced by the giants of the industry — and quality is beginning to pay off. Heck, it doesn’t hurt for me to see my name in lights either, albeit in the company of 10,000 of my best friends. ;-)
