about:mozilla is a weekly round-up of news and contribution opportunities. Here’s what’s happening this week.
7 years of Firefox
We launched Firefox 7 years ago to build freedom and excellence into the web. There is more to do and new experiences with identity, sharing and data to create. The next year will be busy, so first take a break with some red panda cuteness.
Mozilla Festival thank you
Mark Surman reflects on the Mozilla Festival and highlights a few things from #mozfest that give him confidence that we can indeed build the next generation of web makers. Find out what others took away from the Festival and if you attended let us know how your day went.
Support online innovation
The proposed Stop Online Piracy Act targets websites and threatens the functioning, freedom and economic potential of the Internet. Mozilla has joined with Google, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, eBay, AOL, Yahoo! and Zynga to oppose the bill, but it’s critical that Congress hears from everyone. Contact your legislator and tell him/her to vote against SOPA.
Here are a nice collection of screencasts that show you how to use Mozilla Hackasaurus to remix web pages, how to use BrowserID to login into a web site and how to answer support questions in SUMO.
Antarctica has a large percentage of Firefox users (plus large auroras that go well with Firefox Aurora) but there isn’t a Mozilla community there. Let’s fix that. Join the Mozilla Antarctica Facebook page and let’s spread Firefox to all seven continents.
These are just some of the available contribution opportunities. Learn more about other ways to get involved.
The newsletter is written by Mozilla’s contributor engagement team and is published every Tuesday.
