Microsoft, probably watching in futility, had some tricks up it's sleeve as the world ate up Firefox cake. As I was enjoying a rare moment online I happened to see a little update balloon in the corner. Figuring this may be an update on a worldwide virus or attack on their perfect software I promptly clicked on the balloon and commenced downloading. I was alarmed, however, to discover that Microsoft's update was actually simply a cover on a much larger scheme. To have the world unknowingly download Internet Explorer. For some reason or another I was prompted if I wanted to download IE7. Umm, no. They should just go back to watching the world eat up Firefox cake. On the other hand, and by the same token, Firefox small development team is actually eating Internet Explorer cake. It appears a tradition has begun. They also received a cake from IE developers on the release date of Firefox 2. I wonder how it tastes? The cake looks good, but I fear it's past its expiration date and full of bugs. I wonder when they will start give cakes to the Ubuntu (Popular version of Linux) development team?

And you thought you were pissed

I'm just going to go ahead and throw this out there: I'm pretty sure you haven't gotten naked and lifted a bicycle over your head in protest of high gas prices. I anticipate they have probably already done this in Portland, not due to high gas prices, rather just for fun. For the rest of us who consider ourselves sane I anticipate we will all be getting naked when gas prices here in America rise 2.2 times to the current levels enjoyed in Europe. Yes, and I will join you downtown. Just please don't bring your camera.

Firefox 3

download by tomorrow to set the record for the most downloads for one program in one day. this is what yahoo has to say about it

There isn’t yet a Guinness World Record for most software downloaded in a single day, so Mozilla will truly have rewritten the record books if it manages to set one. The group’s hoping for 5 million downloads–not an unreasonable figure, given that Firefox 2 was downloaded 1.6 million times the first day of its release. Indeed, Mozilla’s already well on its way to reaching that goal: 1,721,775 users had already pledged to download the browser upon its release today at 10 a.m. PDT.

download now and be a part of history
