The fox needs heavier saturation (at least on LCDs).

Cool, all domain names are written in the correct order! ;-)

So, how many downloads did you guys have today from the site? Any significant boost?

Posted by: bsander on December 17, 2004 02:16 AM

Also at gemal.dk

The ad (and the buzz it created) definitely seems to have caused a spike in page views: https://addons.update.mozilla.org/mrtg/reptile.html

First of all, congrats on the ad release. I hope that it achieves the goal of increasing mindshare and getting the Firefox name out there.

Second, the ad was noticed here too. I happen to agree with all of what the poster says, except for the not promoting Firefox in the future part, which I disagree with.

In the end, Firefox is much bigger and more important than this ad, and I while agree with the poster that there were various problems areas in the ad that could easily have been avoided, those problems should not (I hope) stop contributors from continuing to support Firefox development.

More discussion on these points is taking place in an sfx post too.

How did you do that? Referrer checking? :-O

minghong, I used several good search engines like Feedster and Blogdigger :)

An article in the Austrian press about the NYT ad:

The daily paper "Kurier" recommends Firefox to the readers. They got RSS feeds as well:

Saw it on a bunch of places, not the least mozillaZine. Would have posted about it myself, but lately I've been working on the transition from Blogger to Pivot for my own weblog. Told a few of my IRC friends about it though, if that counts. ;-)
