Today, we are excited to join together as a global community to celebrate the 7th birthday of Firefox. As the only independent browser with a mission to make the Web better, we are proud of how the last seven years of Firefox have pushed the Web forward:
- The latest release of Firefox is more than 32 times faster than Firefox 1.0.
- We recently shifted to a new release cycle to deliver features, performance enhancements, security updates and stability improvements to users faster.
- Leading edge HTML5 support in Firefox ensures that developers can create beautiful and exciting Web experiences for users.
- Favorite features like tabbed browsing, built-in phishing and malware protection, the Awesome Bar, Do Not Track and our gallery of thousands of Firefox add-ons give millions of users around the world more choice and control over their Web browsing experience.
To celebrate, Mozilla has once again adopted firefox (a.k.a red panda) cubs at the Knoxville Zoo. For the next few months, you can watch these baby firefoxes play, live and grow via a 24 hour live video stream at Firefox Live. Please help spread the word by sharing the cuteness of our newest Mozillians at Firefox Live.
