Microsoft Sends Cake to Mozilla for Shipping Firefox 7

Microsoft continues to follow a tradition as the company sent a congratulatory cake to Mozilla for recently launching Firefox 7. When Mozilla launched Firefox 6, the Microsoft Internet Explorer team send Mozilla a special cupcake. This time, Mozilla receives a similar cake.

Microsoft “@Firefox Congrats on shipping #FF7! Cupcake was delivered this morning :),” Microsoft stated via a twitter post.

“Every time Mozilla releases a version of Firefox, the IE team sends us a cake. They’re cool like that. As the releases have gotten faster and leaner.. so have the cakes,” Mozilla stated.

Firefox 7 is reportedly using 20 to 30% less memory than before! Firefox 7 also has faster sync of passwords and bookmarks between different sessions of the browser. We also see a faster rendering of HTML5 canvas-based animations on Windows, and a new optional add-on that sends Mozilla performance data.
