How the Microsoft Cakes to Mozilla have evolved over time … to mini cupcakes!

This time its a mini. But bang on, Microsoft did what was expected and delivered, or rather gifted Mozilla with a mini cupcake to mark the launch of the final version of Firefox 6, 14th August 2011.

This is the fifth cake which Microsoft has gifted the Mozilla Team over launching the respective Firefox web browser version. Interested in knowing how these cakes ‘evolved’ over these years?

Yes I would use the word ‘evolve’ because gradually these cakes became cupcakes …

Cake 1. Gifted after the launch of Firefox 2 on October 24, 2006. (Black n White)

You think this was all? Nope! After 6 weeks, expect another gift from the Microsoft IE team for the launch of Firefox 7. But this time, I guess it’ll be a muffin or a donut.  icon biggrin How the Microsoft Cakes to Mozilla have evolved over time ... to mini cupcakes!

Looks like Microsoft is getting tired gifting a cake to Mozilla every 6 weeks. But well, atleast Microsoft is sending something. When will Mozilla reciprocate!?

    I guess that Firefox 7 cake will be bigger, since it will ACTUALLY be a considerable upgrade as compared to 5 & 6, which basically challenged the definition of “What is a major version upgrade.”
    I am sure they will do this & world will say, “Hey, IE team is intelligent or imaginative – brickbats not withstanding!!”

    It’s also a perfect example of how MS will resort to childishness when they feel threatened….as if doctored security test result weren’t already enough.

    Proudly, I’m a firefox user..
    A recent on-line research has discovered that IE users have less IQ than FIREFOX users.
    Well, but what about the development team? when will we test them?

    I think it’s not fair to compare!!
