IE Sends Mozilla a New Cake for Firefox 3

Sean from Microsoft came by just a few minutes ago to drop off a cake for the Internet Explorer team. As people may recall, the IE team sent Mozilla a cake after Firefox 2 shipped and it seems that they wanted to continue the tradition.

Sean and I used to work together and I happened to be the one that saw him as he came in so he presented the cake to me and John Lilly and we then took it around to staff. I think people found it amusing and the “E” portion of the Firefox 2 cake, which is preserved in our freezer to this day, was pulled out for comparison. I must say, the new cake is much nicer (and much less brown) than the old one.

Here are a couple of photos from Rob:

Dont eat it !!!  Poison. The oldest trick in the book……

LoL, Honestly I thought it was nice The IE team sent them a cake. It shows good sportsmanship on their part – Coder to coder (not company to company) – in this competitive world of online browsers.

BTW, Kudos to The Firefox Team for the number of downloads!!
