Firefox Brand Toolkit, Tablets in Aurora and more…

about:mozilla is a weekly round-up of news and contribution opportunities. Here’s what’s happening this week.

Firefox Brand Toolkit
Last week we launched the Firefox Brand Toolkit. The goal of the site is to provide Mozillians the information they need to communicate what Firefox is all about. Huge kudos to Sean Martell and Matej Novak for leading the effort to put this toolkit together. Please let us know what you’d like to see in the toolkit.

Tablets land in Aurora

Firefox for tablets is now available for download on our Aurora channel. If you have an Android 3.0 tablet you can download the latest build right now and help us with testing the new tablet UI. If you have any feedback please drop by #mobile on irc.mozilla.org.

In the following weeks, we’ll be launching SIGs around QA, SUMO, Developer Outreach and Marketing.
