  1. Translation, the web development team hired to do whitehouse.gov used Firefox in a screen shot.

  2. That’s awesome!

    Translation, the web development team hired to do whitehouse.gov no doubt tested the site in all major browsers, but chose to showcase Firefox which of course had to be approved by the White House. :)

    There’s also this.
    “President Obama knows how to install a Firefox Web browser plug-in.”

    To use an old marketing line. “You’ve come a long way baby”. :)

  3. With Panorama and Tabs on top, this is not Firefox 3.6. This is Firefox 4 beta.
    We also see the bookmark button in the address bar and the feedback button.

    The presence of the Status bar and not the Add-on bar means it is Firefox 4 beta 6.

  4. Forget my last message, I miss the point completely. It is indeed Firefox 3.6, and you were using Firefox 4 beta 6 ;-)
