about:mozilla is a weekly round-up of news and contribution opportunities. Here’s what’s happening this week.
Last weekend many Mozillians attended FOSDEM in a freezing cold Brussels. A huge thank you to Benoit Leseul and team for organizing our efforts there. Rob Hawkes talked about open Web apps and open Web games, whilst Tristan Nitot announced six grants to international non-profits who will strengthen the Web, free and open source software and user sovereignty.
The Mozilla Antarctica Community Site recently launched which will provide news, interviews and other stuff from the coolest Mozilla community. Not only do we love the penguins but Antarctica is the only continent to have a majority Firefox market share. Must be all the intelligent scientists using it!
