Open-source fans hope Firefox browser can stand up to IE


cNet’s News.com reports that supporters of the Mozilla Firefox 1.0 browser are being asked to contribute money to help the open-source community promote the browser with a full-page ad in The New York Times. To pay for the ad, the Mozilla Foundation hopes to raise at least $30 from roughly 2,500 people. It hopes to market Firefox as an alternative to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, which dominates the browser market.
