A newer, fresher Spread Firefox is here!

1 May

Tonight we unveiled the new Spread Firefox design after a quarter of hard work!  This was an enormous team effort and you’ll notice a lot of great changes.  The original goals behind the redesign were to simplify the home page, make it more engaging and show some of the personality behind Firefox grassroots marketing.  We are also trying to make it a lot clearer for users on what to do and where to go next.  Here’s a recap of the major improvements.

In addition to the visual refresh and a whole slew of bug fixes, we rolled out new documentation — thanks to Lucy Connor —  to help people get started and contribute to Spread Firefox.   Documentation includes:

  • FAQ:  A new and improved FAQ that covers everything from creating an account to the various resources on the site.
  • Getting Started: Tips on how to get started contributing to Spread Firefox.
  • Project Guide: Suggestions on how to start your very own project to promote Firefox.

I want to give a huge shout out to everyone that helped, including:

  • Alex Buchanan
  • Jamey Boje
  • Stephen Donner
  • Krupa Raj
  • Akash Desai
  • Paul Booker
  • Otto de Voogd
