  6. 6. We're igniting the web. Join us! Welcome to Spread Firefox. You are our marketing department, a diverse community of people tired of swatting popups, chasing spyware, combatting identity theft and installing security updates you could set your watch to. You have a vision of the 21st century web and are ready to push it to the world, wresting control from a monopoly that has let it stagnate. We'll provide the tools, but you will drive campaigns that will be rolled out here over the coming months.
  7. 7. We're igniting the web. Join us! We hope you'll bear with us as we ramp up development of this site in the coming months. In the future, Spread Firefox will coordinate a series of volunteer efforts to promote Firefox, and run campaigns to focus our community's energy on very tangible, specific goals. This is just a beta, and there are still validation errors and bugs on the site, so make sure to let us know if something's not working right or if you have ideas for cool new features. And make sure to add yourself to the Spreadfirefox announcements mailing list.
  8. 8. We're igniting the web. Join us! Our first target: one million downloads of the Firefox Preview Release in the next ten days. Register, sign in, and spread the word by adding a Firefox promo line to your email signature and one of our buttons to your web site (or your personal new Spread Firefox blog). Each time someone clicks on your link, you'll get a point, so you'll be able to see how much impact you're making. We highlight and publicize the ten most successful promoters in the "roll call" in the green bar on the right. In the future, prizes and pronounced placement on the wildly popular Mozilla website will offer additional motivation to bump yourself into the top ten. We also intend to beef up our referral tracking and award points for many other things besides referrals, such as donations and active participation in one of our marketing teams.
  9. 9. Call for Volunteers There are many ways to volunteer with the Mozilla project and to help spread the word about Firefox: • If you're a developer, you can help fix bugs, or add cool new features as extensions. • If you're a security expert, help us find security vulnerabilities before they became a problem - and get a $500 bounty! • If you're a tech-savvy users, you can help test our software, file and help organize bugs or contact web sites that don't work with Mozilla software ... and if you're passionate about Firefox and want to help spread the word, then you've come to the right place.
