Tomcat, Chofmann and I were at the first day of CeBIT today, working our demo booth in the open source project area.

A long day on our feet, but totally worth it! Engaging with our Firefox users, and huge fans of Mozilla and open source. Its a real humbling and inspiring experience to really talk to people about why they use, and love Firefox. I’ll post a round up after the event, but at least from one day of asking questions at CeBIT most German users primary love of Firefox — is a love of Add-ons. Customization is everything! Lucky we have more than 6,000 Add-ons to choose from then! 🙂

The picture below was taken by Viktoria at — she also did an interview with Chris and I:


So, more of the same tomorrow. 🙂

PS: We even managed to capture a glimpse of Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Governor of California, CeBIT’s partner state this year. In true Arnie style – he told world leaders to stop “whining and complaining” about the economic slowdown.
