Sweet plugin: Microsoft Cake 2.0 for Firefox 3

Microsoft’s Internet Explorer team has sent a fancy cake to Mozilla’s Mountain View headquarters to join the celebration of the Firefox 3 release.

Surprising? Not that much. They did the same thing for Firefox 2 release.

It was also revealed today that Mozillians keep the IE logo piece frozen since then!

Kudos to the IE team for their sport spirit!

    Mozilla should send back an empty box with a note attached that reads, “Tested on IE. 404 Cake Not Found.”

    [...] Další zpráva ohledně vydání nové a ostré verze Firefoxu je pak od Microsoftu. Ten na vydání nové verze prohlížeče reagoval zcela stejným způsobem, jako při vydání druhé verze. Jako minule tedy poslal vývojářřům Mozilly dort, jakožto gratulaci k úspěšnému vydání prohlížeče, který je pro Microsoft a jejich Explorer 7 (potažmo již Explorer 8) zatím největší konkurencí. [...]

    The cake should have read “Thanks for all the ideas!”

    Nice thoughts from the IE team! I think people @ M$ are quite nice, since people are nice in core… However, it’s the policy & politics that come to break this:
    I bet the IE team are a bunch of extremely cool and nice people. But that doesn’t make me use IE, which is quite limited, and comes as a imposed (not imposing) monopolistic product…
    In all cases, cheers for the good sport-spirit!!!
    Oh, and Go Go Go Firefox!!!

    What Mozilla doesn’t know is that the cake contains a powerful laxative!!!

    They should not only send them back a recipe, but they should include just the ingredients.
