YOUNG AND FRESH
Stronger Than Ever

We don't know exactly what they're feeding Firefox. Also, it's not getting any older. It's as young and fresh as ever; yet stronger and more mature. Of the many features and add-ons Firefox has to offer, we have not even begun to scratch the surface but for the sake of this template we have included a few.

ABOUT LOREM IPSUM ...the dummy text revolution.

Lorem Ipsum is a dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s. An unknown printer once took a gallery (or set) of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. Lorem Ipsum has persisted for more than five centuries and took the leap into the electronics age typesetting. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages. More recently, some desktop publishing and web developing software have included various versions of Lorem Ipsum passages in their designs and code.

Firefox relies on an extension (add-on) system to allow users to modify their browsers according to their needs. It uses this system instead of providing all features in the standard installation package. It's pretty easy to customize Firefox and make it work the way you want it to. Not many browsers out there have these abilities.

One-Of-Us...a Firefox story.

The following article is a true story on how it came about that I am using the Mozilla Firefox Internet browser.

Charlie Lates - August 2015

I'm sure many people will know that when you work in the IT industry, your neighbors (and family) will often regard you as their computer guru, their saviour when it comes to fixing computer related problems. Well, in my street, I am that guy. Sometimes, I have to face things like: "I kicked my computer's box last night because it didn't want to turn on. Before I kicked it, the lights where on, but now nothing happens...can you fix it, please?" Yep, in my street, I'm the guy that fixes those kind of things. Sometimes.

Just recently, I had to refurbish a neighbor's PC and reinstall his operating system. Upon reaching the point where I had to also reinstall his software and applications, I asked him which Internet browser he normally uses on his PC. Now why would I ask a PC user something like that? Isn't that a rhetorical question when we know that the OS on a PC has a browser included already? And everybody uses that one? No it's not. You have a choice. I sensed a bit of reluctancy, and had to be a little more persuasive. You see, I was preparing to "sell" him the browser that I've been using for years. Firefox. However I was going to need something more. I needed a punchline, a secret code. Something that will persuade him to switch. A discussion followed and he eventually agreed on trying a new browser other than the resident one. During this and amongst the advantages shared with him on using Firefox, I ended up saying: "Good, I will install Firefox and soon enough you'll become...One Of Us.

'One-Of-Us'
I have used this term with many clients, including friends and family, over the years and there's always been a connotation to Firefox attached to it. A kind of "religious" one, if I may say so. It all started one day during August of 2008 while listening to Derek "The Bandit" Richardson's podcast featured on the cover disk included in that month's copy of SA Computer Magazine. One of his topics during the podcast was the release of Firefox Version 3.0. Apparently, it's been highly anticipated at that stage and him and Regardt van der Berg, then editor of SA Computer Magazine, did a whole and lenghty FAB (features, advantages, benefits) casting on Firefox.

While they were busy talking, I opened the disk in Explorer, ventured to the package release and installed it. Still busy listening to these two gentlemen, I opened my new found browser, checked out all the geek stuff they were busy pointing out and then I heard "The Bandit" say: ..."One Of Us". The context in which Derek used that phrase related to whoever uses Firefox has to have someting special going for them. It stuck. So much so that to this day I'm still using that phrase and Firefox. Everywhere.

There's more to just designing a Firefox themed web template and posting it online. It’s about spreading the word and good name of the Internet browser we all came to love. It's about loyalty, learning, collaborating and sharing with a global community of Mozillians - coders, activists and more. People who help shape the Web every day. It's about becoming One-Of-Us.

As per Mozilla: "...we’re a global community of technologists, thinkers and builders working together to keep the Internet alive and accessible, so people worldwide can be informed contributors and creators of the Web. We believe this act of human collaboration across an open platform is essential to individual growth and our collective future." Now that's awesomeness!

There are a tiny bit of friendly rules (terms), we ask that you keep in mind when submitting templates to MetalloSoft for hosting on our website. Not much, but there has to be, just so that we can all understand what is expected and to collaborate without any hick-ups.

  2. Templates must be themed accordingly. The operative theme is Mozilla Firefox and only that. Make sure that extras and images (banners, glyphs, icons) compliment your design and the Firefox theme.
  3. We kindly ask that you do not use your template to advertise YOUR website, brand, business or any other. We're doing this to promote the Mozilla Firefox brand. Keep it clean and cool and free of unnecessary download links, advertisements and so on.
  4. Enclose proper copyright notices and credits, where applicable, for media used and contained within your web template's contents like images, icons, fonts and so forth.

  6. Templates will be hosted on our HTML Template Gallery Page, or similar, depending on how much response we will getting from template designers (we surely hope there will be a lot). If you look at our template gallery you'll see it's pretty straight forward. Downloadable templates are advertized with an image thumbnail representing the template, two or three keywords, an author tag and a preview and download link. That's how we will be displaying your template for instance.

The common thread that runs throughout Mozilla is our belief that, as the most significant social and technological development of our time, the Internet is a public resource that must remain open and accessible to all. With this in mind, our efforts are ultimately driven by our mission of encouraging choice, innovation and opportunity online. To achieve these goals, we use a highly transparent, extremely collaborative process that brings together thousands of dedicated volunteers around the world with our small staff of employees to coordinate the creation of products like the Firefox web browser. This process is supported by the Mozilla Corporation, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the non-profit Mozilla Foundation. In the end, the Mozilla community, organization and technology is all focused on a single goal: making the Internet better for everyone."Facebook
