One year ago, on November 9th, 2004, Firefox 1.0 was released to the world in 17 languages and on 5 platforms.
Here's a message from the Firefox team:
Thanks to your efforts, we're in an awesome position as we get set for the launch of Firefox 1.5. Firefox 1.5 will build all all of the great work we've done in getting this far but we're going to take it to a whole new level in the year upcoming. We're going to ship a awesome new Firefox in more than 40 languages and we're going to take Spread Firefox international as well. We're going to offer Firefox users some amazing and innovative new features that make the web easier -- and we're going to build out our Spread Firefox features to make your work here easier and more productive.
