Mozilla & Gecko clones "Recently, I have been pondering why is Firefox so darn popular? This is a question that I honestly ask myself sometimes, often while browsing the web from within the browser itself. The real trick is that there are so many different ways to answer this." More of the editorial here. Additionally, the first set of release candidates for Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 have been posted to the Mozilla FTP of nightly releases.

I use a computer everyday (with IE) and have never seen these 'adverts'. I don't know of anyone who has, the only people who know or have seen these adverts seem to be geeks trying to inform other geeks...

There was a large ad in the NYT in 2004 that had some further buzz about it on the Internet. There have probably been other advertisements in other newspapers since then, and the like. When I look through newspapers or magazines I don't even look at the ads so rather than relying on my recollection you could use Google or something if you care about the particulars.

Advertising includes word of mouth.
