It's like they are trying to attract men rather than women... Check out this (http://www.femfox.com/wp/ep5/femfox_ep5_800.jpg) picture. It's funny though, but I don't really like the pictures on the site. They are ment to be sexy, but somehow those pictures are missing something...

And I still prefer the opera browser (which is not open source, unfortunately).

I too prefer Opera, unfortunetly it doesn't run on the 64bit plateform yet so I can't use it in Ubuntu.

Lol, I'm running it right now, on Ubuntu 64 bit.

I agree with that. If I was a male who nothing about Firefox, and I saw those pictures, I would downloading Firefox. Lady has nice legs/feet though, whoever she is.

It also brings of the question (in my mind) of what women want out of a web browser. I imagine they want most of the same things men want. No popups, tabs, and an overall secure web browsing experience.

Seems kind of silly?

Interesting. Provocative, to be sure.

Will it work? Sure. It just may not work for their target goal. And whose to say this girl just doesn’t want to boost her modeling career by waiving the open source flag until some modeling agency gets interested and then you find out, not unlike the man with the million pixel homepage really doesn’t intend to attend college classes anymore because it became too good of a business model to misrepresent your intentions and take advantage of viral marketing. Unless of course, that was their goal from the start! In which case good for her.

Other than that it wouldn’t make me switch browsers.
