Calling all Firefox users

Please boycott Firefox’s (and I quote) ‘attempt to break a new world record with the highest number of downloads in 24 hours’.

Come on people, use your brains.

Can’t you recognise a blatant advertising campaign when you see one?

Are you really that naive?

Look, instead of abandoning your brain cells, why don’t you nip across to Apple and try Safari (also available on Windows!)?

Or look for another product.

I’m not saying that Firefox isn’t good (it is much more robust than the current version of IE!).

I’m just saying… let’s use our brains here.

Let’s not fall in to any of the traps the hype machine has left lying in wait for us.

Let’s use our bloody intelligence, dammnit!

    2 little tiny points…the record attempt was on Friday, and if we’re already firefox users as your title suggests why wouldn’t we all download the new version?

    See, you just didn’t think it through did you 😉

    I didn’t even know there was a new Firefox to download.

    Thanks! 🙂

    I didn’t know there was such a Firefox campaign. I might have to try it now 😀

    LizSara – oops on the Friday but (and speaking as a Firefox user), it’s the hype that should be avoided, not the product.

    Amy and froggywoogie… you’re both laughing at me, I can tell. 🙂
