There’s a different kind of love in the air. With Mozilla foundation shipping the next version of Firefox the IE team at Microsoft sent them over a huge cake congratulating their ship.
As usual the blog space is abuzz with the news, here are few hilarious comments from one of those:
Mozilla should send the world’s biggest cake to the IE team when they finally release IE8 (they’ve got a year to prepare, so should be plenty of time).
They could even give the cake some varying levels of opacity, although the IE team might not be able to see it properly then.
I like the "7eam" touch.
That isn’t a 7, it is an early form of a cursive capital "T".
I guess that box was rendered in quirks mode.
Great, they can’t even write a standards-compliant cake.
Isn’t it obvious what the Firefox team should do?
They should send them a similar cake with the recipe attached
This has evolved as a tradition at the IE team to send a love note to Mozilla when they release a new version. The below was the one sent when Mozilla released Firefox 2.0.
[So much so for elegant interoperability! 🙂 ]
