Firefox for Brits

I say old chaps, those good eggs at Mozilla have released a British English version of Firefox 1.0. It’s awfully spiffy, as one might say.

    It’s not a huge difference I know, but it’s the tought that counts.

  5. You’ve just gotta love an organization that respects other countries’ language and cultural differences, even when its just “across the pond.”

  6. Gosh darn, so there is. It’s a shame there’s no Linux version, though. 🙁

  7. Ciaran, there is a Linux version. And a Mac OS X one.
