about:mozilla is a weekly round-up of news and contribution opportunities. Here’s what’s happening this week:
New Version of Firefox
Build Your Own Fox
Celebrate the Firefox 5 launch by making your own paper firefox (or make more for your very own skulk of foxes). Thanks to the Mozilla Indonesia community, there are two firefox paper toys to choose from.
New Developer Tools Coming
With the new rapid release schedule, the next versions of Firefox will be here soon and a number of new developer tools are coming in those releases. Learn more about Highlighter, Style Inspector, Command Line and more, and find out how to get involved with the tools team.
Rethinking the Browser
David Regev is thinking about what web browsers would look like today if we redesigned them from scratch. Read about his concepts for natural language commands and dealing with too many tabs. He’s looking for help building extensions to test these ideas, so join the discussion to get involved.
Nikhil Marathe is an intern with Mozilla this summer and he’s written up a great guide for conducting your own successful internship search. Take a look at his post and consider applying for our annual Mozilla internship program next year.
