FireFox Birthday Bash | November 9, 2004
So FireFox has hit release 1.0 and geeks all over the world are throwing FireFox birthday parties in celebration. Brighton has a very high geek contingent so after an initial suggestion to the BNM mailing list, local web developer Tristan Roddis put together a Brighton FireFox bash with the backing of his employers, Cognitive Applications.
Tristan put on a great bash complete with decorations, party poppers, birthday cake and a £100 bar tab. There was also fun and games such as “pin the cursor on the <div> tag” and “guess the number of lines of code in FireFox”. I stupidly guessed 35,000 when the actual figure was closer to 3 million. However the highlight of the evening had to be the live video web chat with none other that FireFox icon designer John Hicks
