Mozilla Gifts Microsoft IE Team Customary Cake

A nice little game Microsoft's Internet Explorer team and Mozilla play is gifting each other cake each time the other launches a new version of their browser. Mozilla sent Microsoft the latest one, to congratulate it on MSIE 10 launch (along with a much bigger one, of Windows 8). In its tweet, the MSIE team thanked Mozilla for the cake, and said it's looking forward to a version of Firefox optimized for Windows 8. It is rumored that Mozilla does/has in the past sent recipes along with their cake (keeping it open-source all the way). Microsoft launched its slickest, fastest version of Internet Explorer with Windows 8, a version for Windows 7 is slated for November.

They'll just name the next version of their android os after a cake.

I like how the lack of a comma in the bottom phrase subtly changes the meaning. Instead of "Love, Mozilla" it says "Love Mozilla" as a sort of subliminal message.

So right now...M$ has gotten 10 cakes while Mozilla has gotten...what are we, 16? 17? 20?

Suddenly I realize the truth behind Mozilla's insane version numbering. It isn't to look better than others, its to keep their programmers fed!!

That's weird. The last time Firefox crashed for me I had 80+ tabs, each of which are of animated gifs. Did the same with Chrome, same thing happened. :laugh:

I don't find it weird at all. The internet is filled these days with pissed-off people having their FF crashing and freezing, I'm just one of them.

the lack of comma is great, and the open source recipe is the *drumroll* icing on the cake

Ha! First thing I noticed. I don't think it's really subliminal though, it's rather clear that the meaning is different, though from what I understand, pastry chefs do not like commas and periods because it can cause problems which then can appear to be mistakes in the decorating of the cake - did you notice the bottom row of the blue dots?

I have gotten fond of chrome since getting a android phone. It allows me to use the same account on both the browser and phone.

They did send a cake; it's just that security found a spy camera in it. :laugh:

In all honesty, if you're going to use Chrome, you might as well compile Chromium. Opera's a nice alternative to Firefox and Chrome, but just doesn't get enough recognition.
