FireFox “Best In Show” at LinuxWorld

By on August 4, 2004

Mozilla FireFox has been awarded “Best In Show” at the LinuxWorld conference, which is taking place this week at the Moscone Center in ‘Frisco.

“The winners of the LinuxWorld Product Excellence Awards represent the best that open source has to offer,” said Warwick Davies, group vice president, IDG World Expo. “With the help of LinuxWorld Magazine and our experienced judges, we have selected the most innovative and effective solutions for users of Linux and open source. We applaud the developers of these solutions for their hard work and dedication to innovation.”

The “Best of Show” award, which recognizes a product deemed by the judges to be an important advancement and a major step forward for Linux in the marketplace, was presented to the Mozilla Foundation for Mozilla FireFox.

It’s great to see FireFox get such a nod, but I’ll admit that I’d never heard of the rest of the winners.

Incidentally, Netcraft found it amusing that the LinuxWorld web site runs on Windows Server 2003.
