Link exchange between Firefox and Microsoft bloggers

In: Mozilla

15 Sep 2004

Asa Dotzler of mozilla.org tells us how he got a link exchange from Robert Scoble, Microsoft’s most popular blogger.

… Robert Scoble, agreed to add a Firefox button to his weblog if I would add a “I recommend installing XPSP2” link to my blog.

Asa has already added the “I recommend installing XPSP2” link to his blog. I wonder what Robert’s CEO would have to say about this if he does add the Firefox button.

Well, whatever happens, I recommend installing Firefox, especially the freshly baked 1.0 Preview Release (grab the Windows installer or a Windows zip package – I assume other platform users will know what they are doing).

I’d at least put up the Mac installer link for FF 1.0. Probably even the Linux link too (not all Linux users are that hardcore :)).

Well, there is at least one reason to not install XPSP2, the fact it’s bundled DRM control components. See

I’ll wait a few weeks before I install the 1.0 preview release, as I love my All-In-One Gestures extension (and others), and it will take a while for extension authors to update them to work with this release.
