Blake Ross’ Grandfather

By on July 5, 2005

Blake Ross, one of the folks who started FireFox, posted a funny story about his grandfather’s browser evangelism:

So when I returned from the airport bathroom two weeks ago, I was hardly surprised to find him […] engaging the head Rabbi of Israel in a delightful conversation about Firefox. We knew it was the head Rabbi because moments earlier the man had been shepherded into the Admirals Club by six (6) police officers, and my grandfather asked one of the cops…if he used Firefox. Then he asked the cop who the man was.

What the rabbi said in reply is both humorous and very telling with regards to Firefox’s reach.
