Even though I’m in the middle of trying to catch up my surgery experience, I’m afraid that I must interrupt things for a moment. I just have to help promote something that sort of ran across my desk this morning. As a web developer, I usually have three of the major web browsers up and running. Well, at least two of those that is. The big three to me are Google Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. Of the three, I use Chrome the most and Firefox to develop with. Internet Explorer? Eh… Only to test at the end. It’s such a memory hog and has other issues that I will not go into here. Anyway, back on topic, Firefox updated overnight. So, I completed the update as prompted by re-starting Firefox. Usually, after the re-start, Firefox will display a “Thank you for using Firefox and for Updating” kind of message along with some other content on the page. Today, I noticed for the first time, there was a link to something called Firefox Live. It’s a live video feed of firefox cubs from the Knoxville Zoo in Tennessee. Clicking the link takes you to the feed page. There is a “Download for Treats” section that helps earn the cubs treats. If you download Firefox version 4 Beta, it moves a visual “thermometer” scale. It was at 11% when I first ran across it.
As Firefox states:
We’re streaming cuteness. We’re dedicated to doing good. We’re out to make the web a better place. Thank you for supporting Mozilla Firefox.
In case you didn’t pick it up before, here is the link to the live streaming site: http://firefoxlive.mozilla.org/
