In a plausible effort to strengthen Firefox community support, Mozilla has launched a new web site, called “Army of Awesome”.
Now, before you start packing your bags, here’s how it works:
- Mozilla tracks and displays all #Firefox mentions at Twitter

Maemo users have also received a Firefox 4 Beta build to play with.
Recently, Mozilla has announced its plans to include Bing as additional search engine for Firefox 4 (US version) web browser.
“Bing itself offers a user experience that we think users will find valuable, and with its significant rise in popularity over the last year, we will also be including Bing as a general search option for English language users,” company officials said.
Just like in other search deals, Mozilla will share revenue from Bing searches as generated by Firefox users.
However, Google still remains the number one search engine and therefore, it’s set as default one
