Voting will end on or about July 18, 2012, and the winners will be announced on or about August 1, 2012.

Judging Panel

  • Ken Saunders | Mozilla Contributor

Ken has been volunteering for Mozilla since 2005 and is the creator and project manager of Access Firefox. He’s also an Add-ons developer, Mozilla Accessibility steward, and a self-proclaimed add-ons junkie, with 56 add-ons enabled (68 installed).

  • Courtney Charet | Mozilla Contributor

Courtney has been a Persona designer and reviewer for over a year. Her Personas adorn the browsers of hundreds of thousands of Firefox users, who love her sparkly, flowing designs.

  • Matej Novak | Mozilla Scribe

Matej is Mozilla’s resident copywriter and all-around word guy. When he’s not working on a website or campaign, you’ll likely find him in a spirited debate about some obscure point of grammar or style—either with someone else or himself.

    I actually haven’t discovered as much as I should, but I love the Personas, they make the pages you use, look nice and they have many. I’m also very much liking the different ways to Blog, on Firefox and I love using the Games, too. They are fun, and I do enjoy them, as I’m winding down for the day. I guess what I need to do, is “Get to know Firefox a lot better”, for now that you’ve asked this question from me, I’m not really sure what all is offered, that’s terrible, as I’ve used it for a long while now, and still I’m sure to this day I’m not aware of all the Wonderful Apps, that they have. Note to self: Must get around on Firefox more, and just see what’s offered, and what fun, things I can find to do. I’m guessing there will be many and I’ll like that very much, too.
    My interests are Gemology, so Jewelry is something I think I could “window Shop” a lot, and Blogging, for just the Writer in me , and I’d love one day to Publish a Book I had finished writing, then my Washing Machine was over flowing one day, and it’s ruined, I’ve been writing this, since 1983, too. Sad day there, but it’s alright, the next time I write it, I can fix all that was wrong in the first one:)…
    Thank you for your time, and I will get to know Firefox a lot better, just in case, you know, I win the Tablet.
    Kindly,
    Karen Clark

    I am using Mozilla firefox from 2003. But at that time i did not know more about add ons. I am using addons from 2010. From that time i am using download status bar to download and manage according to the priorities of audio video etc. I am also using Super start. The download status helps me in several context.
    there are some drawbacks of firefox which i faced as- it does not support free download manager. Any way i feel that it fires in speed and connectivity and support the trueness of the name Firefox..

    I like the Adblock Plus. If I want to see advertisements, I will look at a search engine or go to Facebook, etc. I do not like seeing ads that do not pertain to me or my family.

  22. Tammy wrote on :

    My favorite add on is NoScript. It adds a good amount of protection against scripts that run on pages. Some of those scripts can be bad news and download viruses and/or spyware to your computer. It’s very easy to adjust which scripts you wish to run on each website. I love it and the protection it provides.

    Firefox is my the best browser that i have come across. I am using this browser from past 5 years. My fave addons are
    1) Speed Dial
    I use speed dial very extensively. Its one of the best addon and improves the browsing friendliness. Increases the ease of using the browser.
    2) Fastest Fox
    I also use Fastest fox that enhance the browsing. Searching the related terms and also helps me with lots of suggestions while i am searching for different items online. One of the other best feature is if there are multiple pages then all the pages can be scrolled in one single page.
    3) Thumbnail zoom.
    I use thumbnail zoom addon extensively while browsing Facebook.Rather than clicking on the image and opening it, i just hover on the image to get it displayed on the screen. This helps me to save the time.

  31. Maurice Radiro wrote on :

    The name Mozilla “Firefox” explains it all. It is the fastest search engine and safe to use. Its add-on are clear and straight to the point. What else would a person from a developing country like my “Kenya” require? A simple, user friendly and jargon free internet browse for downloading upgrades, viewing latest world developments and news and games without unexpected hang-ups. This has been as a result of the wonderful search engine form Mozilla Firefox that spreads its search like real fire through a dry bush.

I LIKE THIS add-on… :)

    i discovered firefox courtesy of PCWorld. 7or8 years ago i got my first desktop.the only internet access available at the time was aol dial up. i chose a subscription to pcw as a gift for some internet purchase.
    they had glowing reviews about mozilla. i hated aol. i downloaded firefox just to see what it was like. the download [via aol dial up ] took 20 to 30 minutes. all of a sudden there was a completely blank screen. except for the address bar and tool bar. i fell in love with firefox instantly. a completely blank screen, no ad’s, no distracting crap, totally unlike aol. i really have no use for an android tablet or any kind of smart phones so i am not trying to enter your contest. i am not even sure how many add ons i have,but i can say my faves are download manager and adblock plus. once again from pc world. no one could pay me to switch my firefox for anything else.

    I love Adblock plus add-on so much that whenever I reinstall my windows and got a fresh Firefox without Adblock plus add-on, inside of me I know there is something missing and it is Adblock plus. My virtual life just got adapted with this add-on. I should mention another fact that using internet in developing countries is not yet that much inexpensive but now I can surf always a page extra because of Adblock Plus. Thanks Firefox and thanks to the developer.
