about:mozilla is a weekly round-up of news and contribution opportunities. Here’s what’s happening this week.
Protect the Internet
Mozilla is joining a virtual strike against Internet censorship – along with others like Wikipedia and Google – to raise awareness of U.S. Congress legislation that could fundamentally alter the Internet. This harmful legislation, called the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and PROTECT IP Act (PIPA), will be voted on as early as January 24th in the U.S. Senate. Want to help? Please visit mozilla.org/sopa or check the Mozilla Blog for further details.
Mozilla Firefox Challenge
Mozilla is pleased to announce that the Mozilla Firefox Challenge has raised more than $680,000 for social and humanitarian causes around the world. We would like to extend our congratulations and sincere gratitude to all participating individuals and organizations that made the Mozilla Firefox Challenge a major success. Thank you all for helping us do a world of good.
Identity in the Cloud
Matt Thompson gives a nice overview of some of the recent blog posts on what Mozilla will be doing for the Web and You in 2012 to protect your online identity and personal data in the Cloud.
We are pleased to announce the Extended Support Release (ESR) of Firefox for use by companies, public institutions, universities and other organizations that centrally manage their Firefox deployments.
If you’re interested in the ESR or discussions around deploying Firefox in a managed environment, we’d encourage you to join the Mozilla Enterprise Working Group.
We’re excited to roll out the next phase of the universal tab as part of the One Mozilla project. Right now it’s organized into four major areas, but it will surely evolve based on testing, usage trends and of course your input. If you have suggestions, please let us know in the comments section.
