    Exclamation Microsoft Takes Over Firefox?

    For those of you who haven't heard the news, Mozilla is officially being taken over by the stupid people at Microsoft. Below is the link to the new website.
    For those interested in attending the funeral for firefox, the funeral will be held at http://msfirefox.com/. It will be a sad affair. Also, visit the new website and try out there new stuff. Make special care to read the Support Pages as they offer some great insight on whats in store.














    PS. If you fall for it you got problems.

    Damnit, they don't have a download option for my Windows BOB
    Seriously though, did you do that site? Love it
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm'); 
    Been gone for a few months, and haven't programmed in that long of a time. Meh, I'll wing it ;)

    Of course it is fake, something like this wouldn't happen. There would be too many legal issues that would prevent Microsoft from doing it even if they wanted to.

    And I doubt Microsoft is going to sue them.

    I must be dimwitted because it took a full 5 minutes of poking around the website before I realized the whole point of the website is to label IE7 a Firefox ripoff. OH I GET IT NOW!

    OMG that's the smartest, funniest website I've seen in months. Ingenius!

    Shame that fat-headed microsoft will soon sue them and shut them down. Hilarious, though!

    The download file is actually IE7... get it, IE7 is Microsoft Firefox, see?

    Yeah pretty subtle.
