The web browser teams at Mozilla, Microsoft, Google and Opera might definitely hate each other secretly, but there are times when all of these come together to set standards or further the future of the web.
Microsoft and Mozilla have had a love hate relationship for a while now. After all, Firefox was the web browser which turned the browser industry on its head and gave the dominant Internet Explorer a run for it’s money.
Lot has changed since then, but one thing continues to remain common including Microsoft sending cakes with the IE logo to Mozilla on a product launch. The last time I remember them sending a cake was for the launch of Firefox 3, and with the launch of Firefox 5 today they have repeated the act.
The cake had a similar message from the earlier one which said:
Congratulations on Shipping! Love, the IE Team
The image was posted by @damons, who is the VP of Engineering at Mozilla. This definitely makes for some good rivalry. Here is wishing the Mozilla team a great launch and look forward to some exciting new features in Firefox 6 and beyond.
