Firefox is 10 years old


It’s hard to believe that just over 10 years ago, Mozilla had only a handful of staff and had just shipped Firefox 1.0.

Today, Mozilla, best known as the company behind Firefox (and equally good Email client Thunderbird) has grown to more than 1,000 staff, 20,000 active community leaders and volunteers, and 1.7 million active members of our supporter community around the world — including 2020Media!

Mozilla uses it’s resources not just to make great, free, software but to campaign for an open, free internet.

Mozilla supporters are a worldwide movement of people who believe the Internet is a global public resource that belongs to all of us — not just to a powerful few. We should all have access to products and services that are independent. We should all have the right to privacy. We should all see ourselves as citizens of the Web.

This movement is growing, and so is it’s capacity to win. Just take a look at what we did together on the advocacy front in 2015:

  • We stood up to giant cable companies, and in February we won real protections for net neutrality in the United States. Those companies spent huge sums lobbying Congress to try to limit what we can create, build and do online. In the end, the Federal Communications Commissioners could not ignore 3.7 million public comments in favor of net neutrality — a record-breaking outcry.
  • We won a major victory for privacy. The USA FREEDOM Act was signed into law in June. It marked important forward progress to restore trust online, and put a stake in the ground for more needed reforms to come — not just in the U.S., but around the world.
  • We launched Mozilla’s first international campaign in Germany. In October, we asked our German-speaking community to help fight a German data retention law that put users at risk.

Together, we demanded greater oversight of surveillance activities by governments because our private communications should be private. By banding together, we helped to keep the Web open and accessible for everyone, equally.

Mozilla has big plans on the horizon, and momentum is on our side. Even as we see threats to the Web growing — monopolies, surveillance, fear, insecurity, public apathy — there’s also a flip side: a new wave of open is afoot. Makers. Open data. Internet activism. Connected devices. Open education.

WordPress User Group London

Yesterday evening I went along for the first time to the WordPress User Group London (WPUGL).

This user group is managed via the popular site. You can find out more at

WPUGL brings together London’s community of WordPress users to share knowledge, tips, ideas and inspiration, helping each other get the most out of WordPress.
The organisers run free evening events in central London with an informal atmosphere, encouraging everyone to share their knowledge and learn from others.

Each event focuses on a specific aspect of WordPress. Meetups can include hands on ‘peer to peer’ workshops, advice from WordPress professionals and the chance to network with other WordPress users.

This meetup group is specifically for people who use WordPress in their business, jobs or personal projects and want a supportive local community to help them achieve their goals.  WPUGL is not a developer meetup but typically there are developers and industry professionals at events and who support the user community.

There is another WordPress user group – –  that is much more technical, mostly for developers (in my opinion), and 2020Media are often in attendence there too. Yet another, which is solely developer focussed is

Last nights event was all about Theme Modification.

Organiser Eugene went through the steps involved in modifying a theme including

  • Starting point – does your theme do it already.
  • What is, and how to create a child theme.
  • CSS changes affecting design (stylesheet modification).
  • PHP changes affecting functionality (functions.php modification).
  • HTML change affecting layout (pages modification).

There was plenty of discussion amongst the approx 30 people who came along, with views for and against various suggestions happily coexisting.

The meeting ended at 9 o’clock. We’ll definitely be back! Talk on speeding up your site anyone?
