Say Hello To The New

The site has just been relaunched! And this is just the beginning—there are many more ideas to make the site better.


This is the community’s site and it’s truly been a community effort to create a new look as well as a new vision. Many people were involved with the redesign, but several community members have also been doing a lot of less visible work (modernizing the server, dealing with abandoned content…).

I’d like to thank Sam, fantasai, Reed, Robert, Chris, Stephen, Jeremy, Gordon, Eric, John, Simon, Frank, Mark and everyone at Happy Cog and silverorange for making this happen (and I apologize for anyone I’ve left out).

There’s lots more to do, so if you’d like to get involved with the site let me know.

  1. Hello,

    Congratulations for the new design. Clean and nice.

    There is an issue though. The first text on the page is “We believe”. That is just bad IMHO. Open source community gives choices to people. It is definitely not about “following”, but “embracing” because you have been convinced by it.

    Here, there is a notion (at least in my French culture), that you abandon all *critical thinking* for a message which sounds like a sect. It gives in the hand for some people a bad propaganda image of Mozilla.

    It’s good to have values: “The internet should be public, open and accessible.” but it’s bad to believe in values.

    What about something on the lines of “Our values are …”
    or if you want to stay in the engaging message “We Think”.

      1. Hi David,

        The explanation on the page is interesting. The “We are building” is a better choice and I think it values the poetry of Mozilla story. The values of Mozilla seem to be very close from the Mingei movement (defined by Yanagi Soetsu). See

        * made by anonymous crafts people

        * produced by hand in quantity

        * inexpensive

        * used by the masses

        * functional in daily life

        (* representative of the regions in which they were produced.)

    1. Can you take a look again in IE7 and let us know how the home page looks? We’ve made some fixes, but just wanted to confirm that things look good for you too.

    2. No, not intentional. We want to support IE but there might be some more work to do there. If you could post a screenshot and send a link, that would be helpful.

  2. Hi, the new site looks great!

    I’m also interested in getting involved with the site if you’re still looking for help.

    I’ve been looking for a way to contribute to Mozilla for sometime now and since I have a fair amount of web knowledge, I’m thinking this is a great way to get involved. :)
