Microsoft has broken it’s long lasting tradition in sending Mozilla a cupcake with every major Firefox release. Mozilla’s latest release is Firefox 8, which was released just a few days ago. Microsoft have said that sending a cake every six weeks is overkill.
Microsoft has had this tradition in which they send out a cupcake to Mozilla with every major release, except this time Microsoft haven’t done so. The company said that a release every six weeks is overkill and that it is a lot of cupcakes.
“We didn’t do it since we thought it was getting to be overkill, every six weeks is a lot of cupcakes” This is pretty upsetting for those who were a fan of the cupcakes at Mozilla.
Microsoft shipped a cupcake with the launch of Firefox 4, 5, 6, and 7. The company used to send larger cakes to the company, but since Mozilla has begun it’s rapid release cycle, Microsoft began sending smaller cakes.
Microsoft is hard at work on Internet Explorer 10, and is expected to launch it alongside Windows 8. The company recently announced plans to release a test preview of IE10 every 8-12 weeks.Further reading: Microsoft, Mozilla
