A few months late but I wanted to announce that the Philippine Research, Education and Government Information NETwork (PREGINET) has provided a new mirror for Mozilla in the Philippines.
I want to thank Bani Lara and the team at PREGINET for agreeing to host a new mirror for us in the Philippines.
In this case Mozilla provided the server hardware and PREGINET is providing the bandwidth, rackspace, power, etc.
If you know of an organization who can provide mirror server bandwidth for Mozilla anywhere in the world, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We are always looking for more mirror capacity as this is how Mozilla’s software is distributed to all of our users around the world.
Pierre Equoy has been kind enough to provide an English translation of Tristan Nitot’s comments at the e-G8 event.
Jon Russell at the Asian Correspondent points us to a Bangkok Post article, Internet use increases but Thai sites lagging behind, covering statistics on Internet usage in Thailand taken from Truehits.net (a Thailand-based firm tracking many key statistics.)
For web browsers, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer controlled a 65.6% share last year, a decline of 13 percentage points from 2009. Mozilla’s Firefox increased its share from 2.7% to 15.9%, while Google Chrome rose from 8.4% to 11.8%.
Truehits also provided a list of the top 10 Thai websites which are: sanook.com, kapook.com, mthai.com, dek-d.com, exteen.com, teenee.com, manager.co.th, truelife.com, gmember.com, and playpark.com.
Mitchell and Tristan are interviewed at the e-G8 meeting by OWNI.
